Winamac, Indiana offers just two nursing homes to choose from, which is a limited selection. We gave this city a city grade of B- based on its overall nursing home quality. This is a middle of the road score compared to other places in the country. One of the best aspects of this city's profile is its exemplary inspection grade, which we will address in the next section.
While its overall rating was fairly ordinary, the nursing homes in Winamac performed spectacularly well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded the city an A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This city's next best grade was in the area of short-term care, where it earned a B-. Lastly, the city received grades of C and F for our nursing and long-term care areas respectively. Despite otherwise respectable category grades, this city's poor long-term care grade may be a concern for many prospective residents.
