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 respectable city grade of B- based on the quality of its nursing homes. This is comparable with most of the cities in the nation. This place was stronger in some categories than others, but it didn't have terrible grades in any of the major categories. More information about these categories can be found in the next paragraph.
Despite receiving a fairly ordinary overall grade, this city's nursing homes performed extremely well in the area of inspections. In fact, some of the nursing homes in the city received almost flawless inspection reports this year. Consequently, we awarded Metter one of our highest ratings in that area with an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. Inspections is this city's second best grade. We gave it a B- in this category. In our final two categories, we gave Metter a B- for its long-term care score and a C in the area of short-term care.
