With 38,440 people, Pickerington, Ohio is a relatively small city. There are only 3 nursing homes in the city, which doesn't offer you too many options to choose from. These nursing homes did not really excel from a quality point of view either. The city was given a city grade of C, which is not one of our stronger scores at the city level. We somewhat surprisingly found this city grade is better than the grade we gave the nearby city of Westerville. With Westerville receiving a terrible grade, Pickerington appears to be a better option. One of the better aspects of this place's profile is its nursing homes' impressive inspection reports, which we will address in the next paragraph.
The nursing homes in Pickerington received an inspection score which is stronger than its overall grade. We awarded it grade of B+ in this category. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. The next best grade we gave Pickerington in any area was its short-term care score, where we awarded it a grade of B-. In the last two categories, the city earned a B- for nursing and a grade of D in the area of long-term care. In spite of an otherwise respectable performance, this city's poor long-term care score could be a concern for many prospective residents.
