With just two nursing homes in the city, there are only a couple of options to choose from in Hastings, Michigan. We gave the nursing homes in this city a strong city grade of B+. Even with just a couple of facilities, this is still a great sign. For comparison's sake, we also looked at the facilities in the nearby city of Battle Creek. We found the facilities in Hastings to be in a totally different league than the ones in Battle Creek. The best part of this facility's strong profile was its nursing homes' long-term care ratings. We discuss long-term care in the next section.
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this city's nursing homes performed especially well in long-term care. We awarded Hastings one of our highest grades in that category with a grade of A-. Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are kept in good health. The city also received an impressive nursing grade with a B+ in this area. Rounding out its quality report card, Hastings received favorable grades for our inspections and short-term care areas as well.
