In addition to being a great nursing home overall, it also received A+ government inspections in recent years. Its inspections are nearly perfect. Arguably the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category. Our nursing rating is mostly based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided 4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is an impressive statistic which typically leads to higher quality care. Finally, this facility was also above average in each of the major quality-based metrics we assessed in this category.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was awarded a favorable short-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. Our short-term care grades are thought to be most meaningful for patients in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional skilled nursing. This means not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. 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 final datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of residents who returned home from the nursing home. This proved to be more of a strength for this nursing home. This place performed as well as just about any facility in Alabama with 56.8 percent of its residents returning home. With most facilities, less than half of their short-stay patients ever return home.
Long-term Care Quality
The fourth area we analyzed was long-term care, where this facility received a grade of B+. This completed a very favorable report card. Only a select few nursing homes received a B+ or higher in each of our categories. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are kept in good health. After considering the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 99.17127 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly can be a life or death condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.43 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home.
