With two nursing homes in the city, you only have a couple of options to choose from in Metter, Georgia. We gave this city a city grade of C based on the quality of its nursing homes. This is not a great city grade. Nationally, most cities received a higher grade than this place. The best part of this place's report card is its nursing homes' exemplary inspection ratings. Inspection reports are discussed in the next section.
Despite receiving a somewhat average overall grade, this city performed remarkably well in the area of inspections. In fact, some of the nursing homes in the city received nearly flawless inspection reports this year. Consequently, Metter received one of our best ratings in that category with an A-. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Metter earned its second best score in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a B-, which also isn't a bad grade. In the last two categories, the city received grades of C and D for our short-term care and nursing categories respectively. In spite of an otherwise respectable profile, a nursing grade of this caliber may be a bad sign for levels of nurse staffing.
