Canton, Ohio offers just five nursing homes to choose from, which is not a ton of options. Sadly, we gave this city a city grade of D, which reflects the fact that these facilities generally did not receive good grades in our assessment. This city looks to be comparable to the local city of Beachwood, which also received a below average city grade of D. Neither city received a very memorable assessment. We don't have too many positive things to say about this city's nursing homes, but they did receive surprisingly impressive inspection ratings.

While its overall grade was as bad as it gets, we actually awarded the nursing homes in Canton a grade of B+ for our inspections rating. This category obviously is not the reason for its alarming overall grade. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is generally best to avoid nursing homes that have too many severe deficiencies. Turning the page to the category of short-term care, Canton received a grade of D in this area. In our final two categories, we gave the city concerningly weak grades in our nursing and long-term care areas respectively.
