There are two facilities in Pataskala, Ohio, which at least gives you a few choices. Sadly, the nursing homes in this city received a city grade of D, which is a very weak score at the city level. For comparison's sake, we also looked at the facilities in the nearby city of Westerville. While we aren't fans of either city, we found the facilities in Pataskala to be slightly better.

This city received a terrible overall grade, however, we really wanted to point out that some of its facilities almost perfect health inspections the past few years. We awarded them an elite grade of A- in this category. Inspection scores are based on pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities with severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. Surprisingly, Pataskala also performed respectably in our short-term care category, where it received a B- in that area. In the other categories we looked at, this place received rock bottom grades for our nursing and long-term care areas respectively.
