Only a select few nursing homes earned an A- or higher in in each area we assessed.

In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is much higher than most nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations.
