There are two facilities in Fairhope, Alabama, so at least you have a few options to choose from. We awarded the nursing homes here an excellent city grade of B+. Even with only a couple of nursing homes, this is still a great sign. In fact, this city's city grade was even better than the city grade of facilities in the local city of Ocean Springs. This is especially impressive in light of the fact that we gave those nursing homes in Ocean Springs a city grade of B, which is actually a good grade in its own right. The best part of Fairhope's impressive report card is its nursing homes' inspection scores. Inspection reports are discussed in the next paragraph
To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this city a grade of A for our inspections rating. Arguably the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. In addition, we also wanted to emphasize that we gave the city an A- for our long-term care rating. Wrapping up its report card, Fairhope earned favorable grades in our nursing and short-term care categories as well.
