With just two nursing homes in the city, you only have a couple of options to choose from in Shorewood, Illinois. This relatively small group of nursing homes here received a solid city grade of B-. This is just about average by national standards, which is nothing to be ashamed of. One of the best aspects of this city's report card is its remarkable inspection reports, which we will address in the following paragraph.
While its overall score was somewhat average, the nursing homes in Shorewood performed extremely well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded the city an A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Shorewood also excelled in the category of short-term care with a grade of B+. In the other categories we looked at, the city received a grade of C for its nursing rating and a grade of D in long-term care. In spite of otherwise respectable category grades, this place's poor long-term care score may be an issue for many people.
