Mishawaka, Indiana has just three nursing homes to choose from, which is not a ton of options. Unfortunately, we gave the nursing homes here city grade of D, which is a terrible score at the city level. This city looks to be a similar option to the local city of Michigan City, which also received a below average grade of D. Neither city received a very memorable review. If you aren't deterred by this city's report card, you can continue reading to find out about its category scores. This city's nursing homes surprisingly received a strong grade in the area of inspections for instance.
Despite receiving an abysmal overall grade, this city's nursing homes performed much better in our inspections category. In fact, many of its nursing homes received strong government inspection reports this year. Consequently, Mishawaka received one of our higher ratings in that area with a B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. We also wanted to acknowledge that we gave the city a grade of C in short-term care. In our final two categories, we awarded the city grades of C and D for our nursing and long-term care categories respectively. Despite otherwise respectable category grades, this place's weak long-term care score may be a concern for many people.
