With 96,942 people, Livonia, Michigan is a medium size city. Surprisingly, there are only 2 nursing homes there, which is not quite as many as we expected in a city of this size. We gave this small group of nursing homes a city grade of B, which is a perfectly respectable rating. This is as good or better than the city grade of the average city in the United States. This city's report card is also consistent as it did not receive a single weak category grade either. You can find more information about these in the next paragraph.
To go along with its favorable overall grade, this city also earned a B+ for the city's inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. In addition, Livonia also received strong nursing score with a grade of B in this area. Lastly, Livonia received a grade of B for its short-term care score and a grade of B- for long-term care.
