Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to point out the fact that this nursing home earned near flawless inspections recently. We awarded them an A+ in this category. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also would like to alert you to the fact that this nursing home received a top-shelf grade of A- in our short-term care area. With our short-term care category, we endeavor to forge a meaningful measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last metric we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 5.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. Our nursing score analyzes the facility's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of skill of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home Georgia in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning residents at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Moving on to our fourth area, this facility was given a strong long-term care grade. While this was not quite as good as many of its other scores, this is nevertheless one of the stronger scores we offer. For residents looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 91.42857 percent of its residents, which is a few points lower than we expected. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
