With a population of 44,485 people, Marion, Indiana is a small city. There are only 4 nursing homes there, which doesn't give you too many options to choose from. Unfortunately, the nursing homes here received a city grade of D, which is a very weak score at the city level. We looked at the facilities in the nearby city of Noblesville, which also received a city grade of D. Both of these places received forgettable reports in our assessment. If you aren't deterred by this place's profile, feel free to continue reading to find out about its category scores. This city's nursing homes surprisingly fared well in the area of inspections for instance.
While its overall grade was terrible, we actually awarded this city's nursing homes a B for our inspections rating. This category clearly is not the source of this city's concerning overall grade. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid facilities with a bunch of deficiencies flagged. We also wanted to point out that we gave Marion a B- in short-term care. In the last two categories, this place received terrible grades in our nursing and long-term care categories respectively.
