There are just 2 nursing homes located in Elizabethtown, North Carolina, providing for a relatively small population of 10,670 people. This city's nursing homes were awarded a city grade of B-. This is just about the middle of the road by national standards, which is nothing to be ashamed of. The best part of this place's profile is its nursing homes' exemplary inspection grades. Inspection reports are discussed in the next paragraph.
While its overall rating was somewhat average, we awarded Elizabethtown an A+ for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively insignificant. The city also fared well in the area of government long-term care with a B. Finally, we awarded the city a B- for short-term care and a C for nursing.
