There are only 2 nursing homes in Elizabethtown, North Carolina, servicing a relatively small population of 10,670 people. This small group of nursing homes in this city received a decent city grade of B-. We found this city grade to be considerably better than the city grade of C received by the nearby city of Fayetteville. Although that is not an awful grade, Elizabethtown certainly appears to be a better bet. In particular, we wanted to point out that there is one above average facility in Elizabethtown. This is probably where we would begin our search here.
This city's nursing homes received a somewhat average overall grade, but we really wanted to emphasize that some of the nursing homes in the city nearly perfect health inspections the past few years. We gave it an impressive grade of A+ in this area. Our inspection ratings are based on several datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Elizabethtown's second best category was long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B- in this area. In our final two categories, the city received a B- for its nursing grade and a C for short-term care.
