Miller Nursing Home in Colquitt, Georgia, offers long-term ventilation care for patients from Georgia and other states. In 2010, Miller Nursing Home became the second ever facility in Georgia to house a ventilator unit on campus. Then, in 2015, our facility became the very first nursing home in Georgia to provide onsite dialysis (hemodialysis) to our ventilator-dependent patients if needed.
Because of the limited number of facilities that care for ventilator patients, caregivers and providers often have trouble locating a facility that is not several states away. Keeping these ventilator-dependent residents close to their loved ones throughout their entire treatment is of paramount importance to us. We strive for all-encompassing treatment for our residents experiencing respiratory issues and requiring ventilator care and possible long-term placement.
Miller Nursing Home is a Medicare and Medicaid approved and licensed long-term care facility currently housing 107 beds, as well as a 50-bed specialty unit specifically for our ventilator-dialysis patients. Our grounds are also connected to a 25-bed critical access hospital, specializing in immediate diagnostic and acute health care services. Our interdisciplinary staff of workers in the post-illness rehabilitation unit communicates personally with our patients to craft a treatment and recovery plan, custom fitted to each patient.
To be eligible for placement in our mechanical ventilation program, the potential patient must meet a few requirements, all outlined on our website. Ready to learn more? Click here!
