There are five facilities in Florence, South Carolina, so at least you have a few options to choose from. The nursing homes here received a phenomenal city grade of A-. Even with just a few nursing homes, this is still a great achievement. We found this city grade was even better than the city grade of B+ received by the nearby city of Conway. Both cities received impressive grades, but Florence appears to be an even better place to find a nursing home. Florence is also one of the top ten rated cities in the state of South Carolina.
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this city a grade of A in our inspections rating. Our inspection scores are tied to many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this area typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. We also wanted to emphasize that we gave the city an A for our long-term care category. In the last two categories, the city received a B+ for its nursing rating and a grade of B- for short-term care.
