Covington, Georgia offers only two nursing homes to choose from, which is a limited selection. These facilities were awarded on average an overall grade of C. This isn't a terrible grade, but it isn't quite as high of a grade as we like to see either. By way of comparison, we gave the nursing homes in the nearby city of Jonesboro a city grade of D, which is a very poor score. While neither city received a rave review, we found the nursing homes in Covington to be a better bet.

While this city's nursing homes received a middle of the road overall grade, its inspection grade is notably more impressive than the city's overall score. Due to some of its facilities receiving strong inspection reports this year, Covington received one of our higher grades in that area with a B+. Our inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this area generally have few severe deficiencies. The second best grade we gave this city in any category was its short-term care rating, where it earned a B-. In our final two categories, Covington received middle of the pack grades in our nursing and long-term care areas.
