There are three facilities in Monroe, North Carolina, so at least you have a few options to choose from. We awarded this relatively small group of nursing homes a city grade of B, which is a perfectly respectable score. This is an average city grade nationally, which is nothing to be ashamed of. The best aspect of this city's strong report card is its nursing homes' inspection grades. Inspection reports are discussed in the next section
In addition to having excellent nursing homes on the whole, this city's nursing homes really excelled in the area of inspections, where we gave it an A. Few cities performed better in this area. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category generally have few of these severe deficiencies. In addition, Monroe also fared well in the category of government short-term care with a B+. Finally, we awarded the city grades of B- and D for our nursing and long-term care areas respectively. We are admittedly disappointed by this city's long-term care score, but there's still plenty to be impressed with in this city's profile.
