There are just 3 nursing homes located in Griffin, Georgia, providing for a relatively small population of 61,966 people. We gave this city a city grade of C based on its overall nursing home quality. This is not a strong city score. This place's city grade narrowly surpassed the city grade of nursing homes in the local city of Mcdonough, which received an abysmal city grade. If choosing between these cities, Griffin looks like a better bet. The best part of this place's profile was its nursing homes' stellar inspection grades. Inspection grades are discussed in the following section.
Despite receiving a fairly ordinary overall grade, this city performed especially well in the area of inspections. In fact, some of its facilities received almost flawless inspection reports this year. Consequently, Griffin received one of our best grades in that category with an A-. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this category generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. Griffin's second best grade came in the area of long-term care, where Griffin received a B-. In our final two categories, the city received a C for its short-term care grade and a grade of F for nursing. Despite an otherwise decent profile, a nursing rating in this range may be an ominous sign for levels of nurse staffing.
