Historical

In addition to earning a strong overall grade, this facility performed well in our short-term care category. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we assess a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This grade is more often than not a solid assessment of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. It doesn't look like this facility provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. This facility fared much better in the final datapoint we looked at in this category, which was the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. It fared as well as just about any facility in Alabama with 67.8 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

Turning to another one of this nursing home's strengths, it also earned a very impressive inspection score. In fact, inspections turned out to be one of its best categories. We gave this facility an A-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. This nursing home was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at a few quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place excelled in these areas, with excellent scores for minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care a facility provides.

Historical

The last area we graded was long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a decent score in that category, with a C. While this was not as strong as some of its other grades, it is nevertheless not a major area of concern. Our long-term care grade is commonly used to measure a nursing home's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services offered by a rehabilitation facility. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 20.000002 percent of its patients. This is significantly below what we were hoping for. Nevertheless, this facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
