There are only 2 nursing homes located in Elkin, North Carolina, providing for a population of 10,472 people. We gave this city a city grade of C for an overall score. This is not a strong city grade. It looks like most cities received a B or higher, leaving Elkin on the wrong side of average. One of the best aspects of this city's report card is its stellar inspection rating, which you can find in the following paragraph.
Despite receiving a fairly ordinary overall grade, this city's nursing homes performed spectacularly well in the area of inspections. In fact, some of its facilities received nearly flawless inspection reports this year. As a result, we awarded Elkin one of our highest ratings in that category with a grade of A. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Inspections appears to be this city's second best category. It received a grade of B- in this category. In the other categories we looked at, this place earned grades of C and F for our long-term care and nursing areas respectively. While we found its other categories to be acceptable, this nursing score isn't a good sign for nursing staffing levels.
