With two nursing homes in the city, there are only a few options in Kenton, Ohio. We gave this city a city grade of C based on the quality of its nursing homes. This is not a strong city grade.

While its overall rating was fairly ordinary, we awarded this city a grade of A- for our inspections rating. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. This city's second best grade was in the area of short-term care, where it earned a C. In our final two categories, Kenton earned grades of C and D for our long-term care and nursing areas respectively. While we found its other categories to be acceptable, this poor nursing rating isn't a good sign for levels of nursing staffing.
