Top Nursing Home in Georgia Awards 2020
Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Inspection grades account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area tend to have few of these severe deficiencies. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate deficiency counts for this nursing home. Without having complete deficiency related data for this facility, it is a challenge to really assess the place in terms of this category.
Short-term Care Quality
The second highest category we awarded this facility in any category came in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a B-. In computing our short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last item we considered in this category is the number of residents who returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility received its third most favorable category grade in the category of long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of B- in this category, which is an acceptable score. For prospective patients in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. Thankfully, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
The final category we looked at is nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in that area. This is a perfectly acceptable grade in this category. Our nursing score features many subcategories. The most important factor is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day, which is not an impressive total. Finally, nursing ratings also factor in quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses to assist its residents.
