Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it actually earned a relatively impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. Inspection grades weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid places with a list of deficiencies flagged. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We were also stunned to find that this nursing home received a decent long-term care score in our assessment. We gave it a grade of C in this area. Our long-term care grade is commonly used to gauge a nursing home's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a skilled nursing facility. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Georgia Manor Nursing Home?
Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. Our nursing rating features numerous factors. The most important variable is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This place provided a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we graded was short-term care. Sadly, it received an F for this area, which is a bottom of the barrel score. Our short-term care grade is often employed to assess a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Based on its poor score in this area, we were not surprised to find this facility offers far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. The last measure we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics sunk this nursing home's short-term care score.
