Georgia Quality Metrics

Minimizes Pressure Ulcers

Grade: B-minus

In Georgia, 10.37% of Patients had Pressure Ulcers

This datapoint indicates the percentage of long-term patients who suffer from pressure ulcers. We've found that pressure ulcers are an barometer of a facility's nursing care quality.

Minimizes Serious Falls

Grade: B

In Georgia, 3.17% of Patients had Serious Falls

This is the percentage of patients that suffered from a major fall. Falls leading to major injuries are routinely associated with lower levels of patient supervision. Better nursing protocols reduces the number of major falls sustained by residents in a nursing home.

Minimizes Urinary Tract Infections

Grade: B-minus

In Georgia, 3.19% of Patients had UTIs

This statistic indicates the percent of long-term patients which suffered from a urinary tract infection. Although a higher rate of these infections may reflect poorly on a nursing home's hygiene protocols, it is problematic to compare between facilities due to nursing homes having inconsistent reporting standards.

Tragically, in limited situations, excessive reliance on these medications may suggest a nursing home is using these drugs to control patient behavior.
