Staunton, Virginia is a relatively small city with 35,499 people. It features just one nursing home, which is less than we were hoping for. Sadly, this facility earned an overall grade of D, which is a poor score. This score is rock bottom by national standards. We really don't have too many positive things to say about this place, but it did receive a surprisingly impressive inspection rating. You can continue reading to learn more about this.
While its overall score was terrible, we actually awarded this city's lone nursing home a B+ for our inspections rating. This category obviously is not the reason for this place's alarming overall grade. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Staunton's second best category was short-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. Lastly, we awarded the city grades of C and F for our long-term care and nursing areas respectively. Although we found the rest of its profile to be decent, this nursing score is not a very good sign for nursing staffing levels.
