Defiance is a city with a population of 28,674 people. There are 3 nursing homes there to choose from.
While its overall rating was terrible, we actually awarded this city a grade of B for our inspections rating. This category obviously was not the reason for its alarming overall grade. Inspection ratings are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. Turning to the category of short-term care, this city received a terrible grade of D for this area. In our final two categories, the city received terrible grades for our long-term care and nursing categories respectively.
