Historical

In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

This facility really excelled in the area of short-term care, where it received a grade of A-. Few facilities performed more favorably in this category. In calculating these short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. This nursing home increased its rating in this category by offering more than one and a half times as many physical therapy hours to its patients than the average facility. The final item we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in Georgia in this area with 65.6 percent of its residents returning home. For most facilities, fewer than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.

Historical

This facility is also above average in the area of long-term care, where it was awarded a score of B+. It outpaced most nursing homes in this category. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are well cared for. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 98.817566 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is far higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.76 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Historical

Moving on to the last area, this nursing home was awarded a respectable nursing grade. Although this was not quite as elite as some of its other grades, this is truly not a major area of concern. When computing a nursing home's nursing score, we weigh the number of hours nurses are with patients and the levels of training of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. This facility performed admirably in this area. Avoiding serious falls is typically a reliable indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Some falls can be prevented if a nursing home provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.
