Cartersville, Georgia has only three nursing homes to choose from, so you have relatively limited options. These nursing homes were awarded on average an overall grade of C. This isn't a bad grade, but it is not as strong of a score as we had hoped for either. For comparison's sake, we also assessed the facilities in the nearby city of Tucker, which received a city grade of D. While we aren't writing glowing reviews about either city, we found the facilities in Cartersville to be a bit better. Please continue reading to find more information about how this city's nursing homes fared in our category grades.
While its overall grade was fairly ordinary, we awarded this city's nursing homes a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This city's next best score came in our long-term care category, where we gave it a grade of B-. Lastly, the city earned a C in our short-term care category and a grade of F in the area of nursing. Despite an otherwise respectable profile, a nursing grade this poor may be a bad sign for nursing staffing levels.
