Montgomery, West Virginia offers only two nursing homes to choose from, so you don't have too many options to choose from. We awarded this relatively small group of nursing homes a city grade of B-, which is a respectable grade. This is a middle of the pack score compared to other cities in the country. The best part of this city's report card is is its inspection grade. Inspection reports are discussed in the following paragraph.
While this city's nursing homes received a decent overall grade, its inspection grade is notably better than its overall grade. Due to some of its facilities receiving strong inspection reports this year, we gave Montgomery one of our better scores in that area with a B+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. Montgomery earned a grade of B in our long-term care category. In the other categories we looked at, Montgomery were awarded a grade of B- for its short-term care score and a C for nursing.
