With 12,355 people, Wadesboro, North Carolina is a relatively small city. There are only 2 nursing homes there, which doesn't offer you too many choices. The relatively small number of nursing homes in this city received a city grade of C, which is not a great grade at the city level. For comparison's sake, we also looked at the facilities in the nearby city of Indian Trail, which received a below average city grade of D. While neither city comes highly recommended, Wadesboro looks like a slightly better choice. One of the best aspects of this city's profile is its remarkable inspection rating, which you can find in the next section.
Despite receiving a fairly ordinary overall grade, the nursing homes in Wadesboro performed extremely well in the area of inspections. In fact, some of its facilities received virtually flawless inspection reports this year. Consequently, we awarded Wadesboro one of our highest ratings in that area with an A. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. The next best grade we gave Wadesboro in any area was its long-term care score, where we gave it a grade of B-. In the last two categories, the city earned grades of C and F for our short-term care and nursing areas respectively. In spite of an otherwise respectable profile, a nursing grade this poor may be a bad sign for nursing staffing levels.
