With 17,099 people, North Aurora, Illinois is a relatively small city. There are only 2 nursing homes in the city, which doesn't give you too many choices. Unfortunately, this city received a city grade of D, which reflects the fact that these nursing homes generally did not fare well in our ratings. We looked at the facilities in the nearby city of Saint Charles, which also received a city grade of D. Both of these cities received forgettable reports in our assessment. Despite all this, one of the few highlights of this place's profile is its strong inspection grade. You can continue reading to learn more about inspections and other category scores
While its overall score was abysmal, we actually awarded this city's nursing homes a B for our inspections rating. This category obviously wasn't the reason for this city's alarming overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. Surprisingly, North Aurora performed better in our nursing category as well, where we gave it a B- for this category. Finally, this place earned abysmal grades for our short-term care and long-term care areas.
