Historical

In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A+. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category generally have few of these severe deficiencies. This facility was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This nursing home is also strong in the category of long-term care, where it was given a grade of B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are well cared for. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 96.174866 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents out of the hospital. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Turning to the next category, this nursing home also received a score of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is an above average grade in this area. Our short-term care grade is generally used to judge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation In order to provide highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. The final item we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that returned home from the facility. This place performed as well as just about any facility in Georgia in this area with 60.1 percent of its patients returning home. At most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.

Historical

The final area we scored was nursing. We awarded this facility a grade of D for nursing, making this the nursing home's weakest category grade. We analyzed the qualifications of nurses working for the facility, as well as the quantity of time the nurses were with patients, in determining our grade in this category. This facility provided a meager 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This figure is well below the national average. Unfortunately, this place also didn't perform as well as we had hoped in some of the quality measures we assessed for this category.
