There are surprisingly only 2 nursing homes in Marietta, Georgia, providing for a large population of 302,309 people. The relatively small group of nursing homes here received a city grade of C, which is not a strong score at the city level. This score is not necessarily the end of the world, but it is definitely below average by national standards. One of the better aspects of this city's profile is its nursing homes' strong inspection scores, which is addressed in the following paragraph.
We wanted to note that this city's inspection rating outpaced its overall grade. In fact, we gave Marietta a grade of B for its inspection grade, which is one of our better scores. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category tend to have very few severe deficiencies. This city earned its second highest grade in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-, which is also a decent grade. Lastly, we gave Marietta slightly below average grades for our long-term care and nursing areas.
