Berea, Ohio has just three nursing homes to choose from, which is a limited selection. These nursing homes earned on average an overall grade of D. This reflects the fact that this place has some bottom end nursing homes. For comparison's sake, we also looked at the facilities in the nearby city of Stow, which received an alarming city grade of F. While neither city received a favorable grade, Berea actually looks like the slightly better choice. Despite all this, one of the few highlights of this place's report card is its strong inspection grade. You can continue reading to find out about inspections and other category scores
Despite receiving a terrible overall grade, this city performed well in the area of inspections. In fact, many of its nursing homes received relatively impressive government inspection reports this year. Consequently, Berea received one of our better ratings in that category with a B+. Arguably the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid places that had a long list of severe deficiencies. Surprisingly, we also gave this city a decent grade of C for our long-term care rating. In the last two categories, the city received terrible grades in our nursing and short-term care areas respectively.
