With 31,790 people, Marysville, Ohio is a relatively small city. There are just 3 nursing homes there, which does not give you too many choices. These nursing homes did not really excel from a quality perspective either. The city received a city grade of C, which is not one of our better grades at the city level. For comparison's sake, we also looked at the facilities in the nearby city of Grove City, which received a city grade of F. While we gave both cites poor grades, we found the facilities in Marysville to be slightly better. One of the better aspects of this city's report card is its nursing homes' impressive inspection grades, which you can find in the following section.
This city received an inspection score which is superior to its overall grade. We awarded it a favorable grade of B+ in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. Inspections appears to be Marysville's next best feature. It earned a C in this area. In the other categories we looked at, this place earned a C for its short-term care grade and a grade of F for nursing. In spite of an otherwise respectable profile, a nursing grade in this range may be an ominous sign for nursing staffing levels.
