Canton, Georgia offers just two nursing homes to choose from, which is not a ton of options. We gave this city a city grade of B- based on its overall nursing home quality. This place's city grade was a bit better than the city grade of nursing homes in the local city of Flowery Branch, which received an awful city grade. If choosing between the two, Canton looks like a better bet. The best part of this place's profile is its nursing homes' remarkable inspection ratings. Inspection grades are discussed in the following section.
While its overall grade was not elite, the nursing homes in Canton performed spectacularly well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite minor. In addition, the city also received one of our higher scores in our short-term care category, with a B. Lastly, this place earned a C in our long-term care category and a C in nursing.
