There is just one nursing home in Auburn, Alabama. We awarded the city's lone nursing home a grade of B, which is a quality grade. This should give you at least one decent option. This is as good or better than the city grade of the average city in the United States. This facility's impressive report card was highlighted by its inspection grade, which we will address in the next section.
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this city's lone nursing home performed spectacularly well in our inspections category. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best grades in that category with a grade of A. Arguably the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This facility also earned an impressive grade of A- in our long-term care category. In our final two categories, this place received grades of B- and D for our short-term care and nursing areas respectively. We are somewhat disappointed by this city's nursing rating, but there is still plenty to be enthusiastic about in this city's profile.
