With a population of 20,111 , Rutherfordton, North Carolina is a relatively small city. There are only 3 nursing homes in the city, which does not provide you with too many options to choose from. These nursing homes earned on average an overall grade of C. This isn't a terrible score, but it is not quite as high of a score as we had hoped for either. This score is below average by national standards. Fortunately, we were especially pleased to find one really elite nursing home in the city. You likely can't go wrong starting your search with this place.
While its overall grade was fairly ordinary, we awarded this city an A- for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This city's next best category was short-term care, where it earned a C in this category. In the other categories we looked at, Rutherfordton earned a C for its long-term care score and a grade of D for nursing. While we found its other categories to be respectable, this low nursing rating is not a good sign for levels of nursing staffing.
