There are four facilities in Lansing, Michigan, which at least gives you a few choices. These facilities did not really excel from a quality point of view either. The city received a city grade of C, which is not one of our better grades at the city level. By way of comparison, we awarded the nursing homes in the nearby city of Flint a city grade of D, which is a well below average grade. While neither city received a glowing review, we found the nursing homes in Lansing to be a better option. One of the better aspects of this city's profile is its nursing homes' strong nursing scores, which is addressed in the next paragraph.
This city's overall grade was propped up by its impressive scores in nursing. We gave the city one of our higher grades in this area, with a B+. Cities with these types of nursing ratings typically have nursing homes offering high levels of staffing. Lansing earned a B+ in the area of short-term care. Finally, this place received a C in our inspections category and a grade of D for long-term care. It goes without saying that this city's long-term care rating really pulled down its overall score.
