There are just 3 nursing homes in Griffin, Georgia, servicing a population of 61,966 people. We awarded the nursing homes in this city city grade of C, which isn't quite as high of a grade as we like. Nationally, most cities received a higher score than this place. The best part of this place's report card was is its inspection score. We discuss inspections in the following section.
This city's overall grade was propped up by its impressive government inspections in recent years. We awarded the city one of our better grades in this area, with a B+. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This city's second best category was short-term care, where it received a C in this category. In the other categories we looked at, we gave Griffin grades of C and D for our long-term care and nursing categories respectively. While we found most of its grades to be respectable, this nursing score is not a very good sign for nursing staffing levels.
