There's a new service, quality star rating on this website for nursing homes. It rates the quality of the nursing home on a 1 to 5 star rating. Checking Leon County's 7 nursing homes, Miracle Hill Nursing and Convalescence got the highest ratings in all categories for all nursing homes in the county.

Showed previous inspections too, and it looks like inspections are done yearly. Wonder if the nursing facilities recognize that it's time again for the auditors and attempt to improve conditions during the period they think they'll be accessed. Not trying to imply they would be less viligent in their care at other times, more concerned with just once a year inspections, random or not. Seems to me wouldn't take long for a negligent condition to affect someone already in compromised condition.

Just concerned for those who may not have a voice. Check out the site and see what you think.
