With 13,569 people, Nanticoke, Pennsylvania is a small city. There are only 2 nursing homes there, which does not provide you with too many options to choose from. We awarded the nursing homes in this city city grade of C, which isn't quite as high of a score as we had hoped for. This score is not necessarily the end of the world, but it is definitely below average by national standards.

While its overall grade was fairly ordinary, we awarded this city an A- for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. Nanticoke's next best category was nursing, where it earned a B- in this category. In the last two categories, the city received grades of C and D for our short-term care and long-term care areas respectively. Despite an otherwise respectable profile, a long-term care score this poor may be a problem for some prospective residents.
