Lorain, Ohio is a relatively small city with 67,952 people. The city has only one nursing home, which is not the selection we were hoping for. Sadly, this facility earned an overall grade of D, which is a very weak grade. This grade is about as bad as it gets and certainly raises some major red flags. We were surprisingly able to give this nursing home some positive feedback for our inspections category, which you can read more about below.
This city's lone nursing home received an abysmal overall grade, however, we wanted to acknowledge its relatively impressive inspections in recent years. We awarded them a B+ in this area. Our inspection scores are based on several items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. Turning to the next category, the city received grade of just D in the category of nursing, which is its second highest grade. Finally, Lorain earned alarmingly low grades for our long-term care and short-term care areas respectively.
