With 87,558 people, Morgantown, West Virginia is a decent size city. Amazingly, there is just one nursing home there. We were relieved to discover that its only nursing home received an excellent overall grade of B+. This city has the distinction of being one of the three highest rated cities in the state of West Virginia. The best aspect of this nursing home's strong report card was its inspection reports. Inspection reports are discussed in the next paragraph
As mentioned above, this city's nursing home received a great overall grade, but we especially wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless health inspections the past few years. We awarded them an elite grade of A in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite insignificant. This facility also earned an elite grade of A- in the area of long-term care. Finally, the city received middle of the pack grades for our short-term care and nursing areas.
