Dearborn Heights, Michigan is a medium size city with 57,774 people. The city has just 2 nursing homes, which does not offer you too many options. These nursing homes did not really stand out from a quality point of view either. The city was awarded a city grade of C, which is not one of our better scores at the city level. This score is not the end of the world, but it is well below average by national standards. One of the highlights of this city's profile is its nursing homes' strong nursing scores, which is addressed in the following paragraph.
This city's nursing homes' most impressive category grade was in nursing. In this category, we gave the city a B. Our nursing rating analyzes a facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with residents. This city's next best category is inspections, where it earned a B- in this category. Finally, this place were awarded a B- in our short-term care category and a grade of D in the area of long-term care. Despite an otherwise decent profile, a long-term care rating in this range may be concerning for some prospective residents.
