Historical

One of the reasons this ended up being a great nursing home is it earned a very impressive inspection grade. In fact, inspections ended up being its best category. In this area, we awarded this nursing home an A. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

Contributing to its first-rate resume, this facility also was given an excellent short-term care score, with a grade of A. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we look at a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This score is generally a meaningful measure of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. The last statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. This place fared as well as just about any facility in Alabama in this area with 67 percent of its residents returning home. For most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.

Historical

This facility also received a strong long-term care score. Indeed, we gave it an above average score of B+ in this category. Facilities that receive this kind of score in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are kept in good health. After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 96.79359 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.71 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Historical

Moving on to our final area, this facility was given a high-end nursing rating. Even though this wasn't quite as impressive as some of its other grades, this is nevertheless one of the more favorable scores we offer. Our nursing score is mostly based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some quality-based measures in this category. This facility fared well in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. For example, in terms of the percentage of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, this place performed better than the national average. This is generally an indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented with better nursing care.
