With a population of 13,934 people, South Boston, Virginia is a relatively small city. There are only 2 nursing homes there, which doesn't provide you with too many options to choose from. The small group of nursing homes in this city received a city grade of C, which is not a strong score at the city level. This score unfortunately is on the wrong side of the national average. This place is stronger in some categories than others, but it didn't have terrible grades in any of our major categories. Additional information about these categories can be found in the next paragraph.
This city's nursing homes' best category grade was in our long-term care category. In this area, we gave the city a grade of B. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is a good sign for patient care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. This city received its next best grade in the category of inspections, where we awarded it a B-, which also isn't too bad. In the last two categories, this place earned a C for short-term care and a grade of C for nursing.
