There are four facilities in Charleston, South Carolina, so at least you have a few options. We gave this city a city grade of B based on its overall nursing home quality. This is an average city grade nationally, which is nothing to be ashamed of. We were also pleased to find that this place's nursing homes didn't have any bad scores in any of the four major categories. More information about its category grades is available in the next section.
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, most of the nursing homes in Charleston performed especially well in the area of inspections. In fact, some of the nursing homes in the city received virtually flawless inspection reports this year. As a result, we awarded Charleston one of our best ratings in that category with a grade of A-. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. The city received a grade of B+ in the area of short-term care. Finally, Charleston were awarded a B+ in our long-term care category and a B- in nursing.
