With seven nursing homes in the city, you have a decent number of facilities in Canton, Ohio. The nursing homes in this city received a city grade of C, which is not a strong grade at the city level. We also looked at the facilities in the nearby city of North Royalton, which received a city grade of F. While we gave both cites weak scores, we found the facilities in Canton to be a better bet. The best part of this city's profile is is its inspection grade. Inspection reports are discussed in the following paragraph.
This city's nursing homes' overall grade was propped up by its impressive inspections in recent years. We gave the city one of our higher scores in that category, with a grade of B. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This city earned its next highest grade in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a B-, which also isn't a bad grade. In the last two categories, Canton earned grades of C and D for our nursing and long-term care areas respectively. Despite otherwise respectable category grades, this city's weak long-term care score could be a concern for many prospective residents.
