Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with a strong overall score, we gave this place an A+ for our inspection category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

Another reason we graded this facility so highly is that it received an A+ long-term care grade. This is simply as elite as it gets in this area. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are well cared for. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 98.9011 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Turning the page to our third area, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for our short-term care rating. This is a superb score. With our short-term care assessment, we seek to forge a fair measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 7 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the final area, we gave this facility an A+ for its nursing rating. This topped off an elite profile. In determining our nursing ratings, we look at both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility Alabama in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving patients at least once a day.
