Merrillville is a city with a population of 38,340 people. There are 2 nursing homes there to choose from.
While its overall score was terrible, this city's nursing homes performed much better in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for that category, which is one of our better scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. The next area we looked at was short-term care, where this city received a D. Finally, we awarded the city alarmingly low grades for our nursing and long-term care categories respectively.
