There are only 3 nursing homes in La Porte, Indiana, providing for a population of 43,650 people. We awarded the nursing homes in this city city grade of C, which isn't quite as strong of a grade as we had hoped for. This score is below average by national standards. The best part of this city's profile is its nursing homes' remarkable inspection ratings. Inspection grades are discussed in the following section.
While its overall grade was fairly ordinary, we awarded La Porte an A- for our inspections rating. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This city's second best category is short-term care, where we gave it a C in this area. In the last two categories, the city earned a C for its nursing rating and a grade of D for long-term care. Even with otherwise respectable category grades, this city's poor long-term care rating could be a concern for many people.
