This relatively small group of nursing homes here received a city grade of B-. This is just about average by national standards, which is perfectly respectable. One of the better aspects of this place's report card is its nursing homes' strong inspection reports, which you can find in the following section.
The nursing homes in Morgantown received an inspection grade which is superior to its overall grade. We gave them a strong grade of B+ in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite insignificant. In addition, the city also earned one of our higher grades in the area of long-term care, with a B+. In our final two categories, the city earned slightly below average grades for our short-term care and nursing categories.
