While neither city received a rave review, we found the facilities in Painesville to be a better option. The best part of this place's profile is its nursing homes' stellar inspection ratings. Inspection grades are discussed in the next section.
Despite receiving a fairly ordinary overall grade, this city performed remarkably well in the area of inspections. In fact, some of its facilities received virtually flawless inspection reports this year. Consequently, we awarded Painesville one of our highest ratings in that area with an A-. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Inspections appears to be this city's next best grade. It earned a B- in this category. Lastly, we gave Painesville middle of the road grades for our long-term care and nursing areas.
