One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is it received an A+ inspection grade. This is just about as good as it gets in this very important category. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't something to panic about.
This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, this turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Our nursing grade is mostly associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 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 nursing home Alabama in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a system of moving a resident more often.

In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we scored turned out to be this facility's worst category. Nevertheless, even in its weakest link we still awarded it a respectable grade of B- for our long-term care category. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. We weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's vaccination rates. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
