With an address in Pooler, Georgia, The Place at Pooler is the sole facility we were able to find in this city. With an overall grade of D, this is a relatively poor nursing home. At the end of the day, we'd struggle to recommend this place. Despite all this, one of the few highlights of this facility's report card is its strong inspection rating.

Historical

While we were fairly low on this facility overall, we awarded it a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

We also gave this facility a solid score in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care grades. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. We were concerned by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated only 89.454544 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Lastly, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. With 1.73 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this place is also below the national average.

Historical

This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. Our nursing score assesses the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of skill of those nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. This place offered a meager 2.6 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. In addition to its weak nursing hours, this facility also received poor marks in several of the quality-based measures we considered in determining our nursing scores. We found that more of this facility's patients sustained falls which led to major injury.

Historical

The last area we analyzed is short-term care, in which this nursing home was given a rock bottom score in this category as well. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this area, which is definitely very concerning. Our short-term care grades are believed to be more meaningful for patients in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually requires additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Given its poor grade, we were not shocked to find that this nursing home provided substantially fewer registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 30.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
