Switching gears to the last category, this facility was awarded a highly favorable long-term care rating. We awarded it a B+ in that category, topping off one of our better profiles. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations.
