Granger, Indiana is a small city with 30,614 people. The city features just one nursing home, which is not the selection we were hoping for. This nursing home was awarded an overall grade of C, so it may be worth looking at. This grade unfortunately is on the wrong side of the national average. The best part of this nursing home's profile was its exemplary short-term care score. Short-term care grades are discussed in the following paragraph.
This city's only nursing home received a fairly ordinary overall grade, however, we gave it an impressive grade of A- in our short-term care category. Our short-term care ratings are arguably more meaningful for individuals in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. This city's next best category is inspections where we gave this place a B- in this category. In the other categories we looked at, Granger earned a C in our nursing category and a grade of D in long-term care. In spite of an otherwise respectable performance, this city's poor long-term care rating may be a problem for many people.
