With a population of 41,030 people, Sandusky, Ohio is a relatively small city. There are just 3 nursing homes in the city, which does not give you too many options. We gave this city a city grade of B for overall nursing home quality. We found this city grade was considerably better than the city grade of C received by the nearby city of Toledo. Although that isn't a terrible grade, Sandusky appears to be in a totally different league. We were pleased to find one really elite facility in the city. You probably can't go wrong starting your search with this place.
To pair with its great overall grade, we awarded this city a grade of A- for our inspections category. Inspection grades weigh several factors, 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 city also received one of our better grades in our short-term care category, with a B+. Finally, the city earned a B for its long-term care rating and a B- for nursing.
