With 41,932 people, Euclid, Ohio is a relatively small city. There are only 2 nursing homes in the city, which does not provide you with too many options. Sadly, we gave this city a city grade of D, which reflects the fact that these facilities generally did not fare well in our ratings. We also looked at the facilities in the nearby city of Stow, which received an abysmal city grade of F. While neither city received a favorable grade, Euclid appears to be a slightly better option. If you aren't deterred by this city's profile, you can continue reading to find out about its nursing homes' category scores. This city's nursing homes actually received a strong grade in inspections for example.
Euclid received an awful overall grade, but we wanted to point out its strong health inspections in recent years. We gave the city a B+ in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively insignificant. We also wanted to point out that we awarded this place a grade of C in our short-term care category. In our final two categories, we gave Euclid rock bottom grades for our long-term care and nursing categories respectively.
