There are just 2 nursing homes located in Kent, Ohio, providing for a relatively small population of 43,585 people. This small group of nursing homes here received a city grade of B-. This place's city grade was a bit better than the city grade of nursing homes in the nearby city of Stow. While the nursing homes in Stow are not terrible, we found Kent to be a better option. Finally, this city's nursing homes received consistent grades in all of the major categories we assessed. More information about these categories is available below.
Despite receiving a fairly ordinary overall grade, this city performed spectacularly well in our inspections category. In fact, some of the nursing homes in the city received almost perfect inspection reports this year. As a result, we awarded Kent one of our highest ratings in that category with an A. Inspection scores weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this category tend to have few of these severe deficiencies. Inspections is Kent's second best attribute. We gave it a B- in this area. In our final two categories, the city earned middle of the road grades for our nursing and long-term care areas.
