With a population of 102,620 people, Gastonia, North Carolina is a moderately populated city. There are 6 nursing homes there, which provides you with multiple options to choose from. We gave the nursing homes here a city grade of B-, which is a respectable grade. This is just about average by national standards, which is nothing to be ashamed of. Finally, this place's nursing homes were consistent in each of the major categories we assessed. Additional information about these categories is available below.
While its overall grade was fairly ordinary, we awarded this city's nursing homes an A- for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite minor. The city also earned one of our better scores in our long-term care category, with a grade of B+. In the last two categories, we awarded the city a grade of B- for short-term care and a C for nursing.
