There is just one nursing home located in Morganton, North Carolina, servicing a population of 54,996 people. We awarded the city's lone nursing home a grade of C, so it may be worth looking at. For comparison's sake, we also looked at the facilities in the nearby city of Lenoir. With Lenoir receiving a terrible city grade, we found the facility in Morganton to be rated much higher than most of the facilities in Lenoir. You may be satisfied with this facility. If you are searching for more options, you're just going to have to look in other cities.
While its overall grade was somewhat average, this city's sole nursing home performed remarkably well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. Morganton received its second best grade in the category of short-term care. We gave this nursing home a B- in this category, which is decent. Finally, this place received a C for long-term care and a grade of F in nursing. Although we found its other categories to be acceptable, this poor nursing score isn't a great sign for levels of nursing staffing.
