There are two facilities in Kannapolis, North Carolina, so at least you have a few options to choose from. This small group of nursing homes earned on average an overall grade of B-, which is a solid score for the city. We somewhat surprisingly found this city grade was better than the grade we gave the nearby city of Lexington. With Lexington receiving a terrible grade, Kannapolis certainly appears to be a better option. In particular, we wanted to point out that there is one above average nursing home here. This is most likely where we'd begin our search here.
Despite receiving a fairly ordinary overall grade, the nursing homes in Kannapolis performed especially well in the area of inspections. In fact, some of the nursing homes in the city received virtually flawless inspection reports this year. Consequently, Kannapolis received one of our highest scores in that category with an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. Kannapolis earned a B in the area of long-term care. In the last two categories, this place earned a C for its nursing score and a C in the area of short-term care.
