Plainwell, Michigan is an average size city with 15,802 people. The city has only 2 nursing homes, which does not offer you too many options to choose from. Unfortunately, this city received a city grade of D, which reflects the fact that these facilities generally did not receive good grades in our assessment. This city looks to be a similar option to the nearby city of Hudsonville, which also received a below average city grade of D. Frankly, neither of these cities received a very good review. Despite all of its shortcomings, one of the few highlights of this place's profile is its strong nursing score. You can scroll down to learn more about nursing and other category scores
While its overall grade was as bad as it gets, we awarded Plainwell a B for our nursing category. This category clearly isn't the source of this city's concerning overall grade. We weighed the licensure of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses were with patients, in determining our score in this area. We also wanted to acknowledge the city's decent inspections the past few years. In fact, we awarded it a C in that category. In the last two categories, we gave Plainwell grades of C and F for our short-term care and long-term care areas respectively. Despite an otherwise respectable profile, a long-term care score in this range may be an issue for some people.
