With three nursing homes in the city, there are only a couple of choices in Elizabethton, Tennessee. We awarded the nursing homes in this city a very good city grade of B+. Even with only a couple of nursing homes, this is still a great sign. We were so impressed with this city that we ranked it as one of the ten highest rated cities in all of Tennessee. We also want to make sure you are aware that Elizabethton has a couple of facilities that received a grade of A- or higher. These facilities would be a great fit for most prospective residents.
This city's nursing homes received a strong overall grade, but we especially wanted to point out that some of its facilities received nearly perfect health inspections in recent years. We awarded Elizabethton an impressive grade of A+ in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite minor. In addition, the city earned a grade of B+ for the city's short-term care rating. Lastly, Elizabethton received slightly below average grades for our long-term care and nursing areas.
