Munster, Indiana has just two nursing homes to choose from, which is a limited selection. The small number of nursing homes here received a city grade of C, which is not a strong score at the city level. This city's city grade was a bit better than the city grade of nursing homes in the nearby city of La Grange, which received an abysmal city grade. If choosing between the two, Munster looks like a better option. The best part of this place's report card was is its inspection score. We discuss inspections in the next section.
This city's nursing homes' overall grade was propped up by its impressive government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our higher scores in this area, with a B. Our inspection ratings are tied to several items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this category have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Inspections is Munster's second best attribute. The city earned a B- in this category. In our final two categories, Munster earned grades of C and D for our nursing and long-term care areas respectively. In spite of an otherwise respectable performance, this city's weak long-term care rating may be a problem for many prospective residents.
