With 12 nursing homes in the city, Fort Wayne, Indiana has more nursing homes to choose from than most cities in Indiana. We gave this city a city grade of C based on the quality of its nursing homes. This is not a great city score. This grade is below average by national standards. This place was stronger in some categories than others, but it did not have terrible scores in any of our four major categories. More information about its category grades is available in the next paragraph.
While this city received a decent overall grade, its inspection grade is better than the city's overall grade. Due to some of its nursing homes receiving favorable inspection reports this year, we gave Fort Wayne one of our higher scores in this area with a B+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. This city's next best score was in short-term care, where it received a B-. In our final two categories, we gave Fort Wayne middle of the road grades in our nursing and long-term care areas.
