With 15,623 people, Riverview, Michigan is a relatively small city. There are just 3 nursing homes in the city, which does not offer you too many options to choose from. These facilities earned on average an overall grade of C. This isn't a bad score, but it isn't quite as strong of a score as we had hoped for either. We actually found this city grade was better than the grade we gave the nearby city of Hamtramck. With Hamtramck receiving such a terrible grade, Riverview certainly appears to be a better option.

While the nursing homes in Riverview received a decent overall grade, its inspection grade is notably better than its overall grade. Due to some of its facilities receiving favorable inspection reports this year, we gave Riverview one of our better grades in this area with a B. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. In addition, Riverview received a B in the area of nursing. Rounding out its report card, the city earned grades of B and D for our short-term care and long-term care categories respectively. Even with an otherwise impressive profile, a long-term care score this poor may be an issue for some prospective residents.
