With 34,057 people, Beachwood, Ohio is a small city. There are 5 nursing homes there, which should give you a decent number of choices. This city received a city grade of C based on its overall nursing home quality. This is not a great city grade. Surprisingly, this city's city grade was a bit better than the city grade of facilities in the local city of Stow, which received a terrible city grade. We would advise you to be very selective in either city. The best part of this city's profile was is its inspection grade. Inspection grades are discussed in the following paragraph.
While this city's nursing homes received a decent overall grade, its inspection grade is higher than the city's overall grade. Due to some of its facilities receiving favorable inspection reports this year, we gave Beachwood one of our higher grades in that area with a B. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area usually have very few severe deficiencies. In addition, the city also received one of our higher grades in the area of short-term care, with a grade of B. In our final two categories, Beachwood were awarded a grade of B- for its nursing grade and a grade of D in the area of long-term care. In spite of otherwise respectable category grades, this city's poor long-term care score could be an issue for many prospective residents.
