There are only 2 nursing homes in Alabaster, Alabama, providing for a relatively small population of 26,225 people. This place's nursing homes received an excellent city grade of B+, so what this city lacks in quantity, it makes up for by having high quality nursing homes. This is a better score than the average city in the United States. The best aspect of Alabaster's strong report card was its nursing homes' inspection reports. Inspection grades are discussed in the next section
As mentioned above, this city received a great overall grade, but we especially wanted to emphasize that some of its facilities received virtually perfect health inspections the past few years. We awarded Alabaster an elite grade of A in this category. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. We also wanted to point out that we gave the city an A- in our long-term care category. In our final two categories, the city earned a B for nursing and a B- in the area of short-term care.
