There appears to be only one nursing home in Pontiac, Michigan. We awarded the city's lone nursing home a grade of C, so it may be worth looking at. It looks like most cities received a B or higher, leaving Pontiac on the wrong side of average. One of the major highlights of this facility's profile is its stellar short-term care rating, which is addressed in the following paragraph.
While its overall rating was somewhat average, this city's nursing home performed spectacularly well in short-term care. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. In computing our short-term care ratings, we look at a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This rating is generally a useful assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. This facility also received one of our higher scores in nursing, where we gave it a B for the category. In the last two categories, the city earned terrible grades for our inspections and long-term care areas respectively. As you can see, this city's long-term care rating really dragged down its overall grade.
