    We have three family members who happily call Palmetto Inn at Savannah Square their home. From the very beginning I've been impressed with the lovely atmosphere of the building, the beautiful and well-kept grounds, and especially the kind and caring staff. Whitney, the move-in coordinator, was with us every step of the way from our first tour to making sure my Mom was happy and settled in her new apartment. Minnie Simmons, the director at Palmetto Inn, utilizes her professional skills as a nurse and an administrator to give each of our three family members excellent, personalized care. Bennie, the activities director, has something fun happening every day, from chair aerobics and bingo to ice cream socials and happy hours. She truly has a heart for seniors and gives so much of herself each and every day to build and maintain a vibrant community for residents. She is quick to get to know each resident and their family members, treating us all with respect and offering kindness and support. There are many CNAs as well, who serve meals, dispense medication, and provide personal care with an attitude of caring and professionalism. I absolutely could not be happier with our experience at Savannah Square.

    We were so touched by the compassion and empathy demonstrated by all staff at Savannah Squares. Not only did they take excellent care of my mom, they also cared for my sister and I as we spent many hours at mom's bedside. I highly recommend them if you need care for a loved one.

    I visit three friends at Palmetto ( Asst living). I visited one of these ladies for 3 plus months in the Medical Center where she received excellent care as well as PT, OT & Speech Therapy. Palmetto staff have made all the difference in the quality of life for my three friends. Nursing staff is caring and attentive! The housekeeper addresses my friends by name. She found one of my friends walking away from her walker and acted quickly to block walker and called for help. The kitchen staff knows special needs and at least one of them sings as she cleans up after meals. Her beautiful voice brings JOY! The activity director ( Bennie ) arranges for enjoyable entertainment & routine scheduled activities that build community and keep residents active. She has a gift for relating to residents and encouraging one and all ! Her music choices for chair arrobics have residents singing along as they participate in this well organized class! She is a very busy lady! I enjoy the Diva Dancers and Karen ( new) on her guitar because they include residents & use well known music in their time with residents. Bennie is good at providing new socializing activities for residents. She is a joy and encouragement to residents and those of us who care about family & friends who call Palmetto home.

    This facility seems to be very clean and well maintained. The nurses have all been professional and polite during our time here. There are plenty of activities to keep the residents happy. It is a very calm and enjoyable environment. I would suggest this location for any of your loved one's needs.

    It was a wonderful experience moving my mom into Savannah Square! The facility is beautiful and inviting; the staff helpful and accommodating and the other residents welcoming and congenial. Whitney Norwood, our contact at Savannah Square, could not have been more helpful. She was knowledgeable and patient with all my questions and worked extra hard to finish an apartment for my mom in the time frame that we had. My mom has only been at Savannah Square for a short time, but she is already enjoying the amenities (including the good food!) and activities. Thank you, Savannah Square, for being there for us at this time in my mom's life.

Compare The Number of Problems

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
