With a population of 40,220 people, Manitowoc, Wisconsin is a relatively small city. There are just 2 nursing homes there, which doesn't offer you too many choices. We gave the nursing homes here a very good city grade of B+. Even with only a few facilities, this is still a great sign. By way of comparison, we gave the facilities in the nearby city of Sheboygan a city grade of B-, which is not a bad grade. Nevertheless, we found the nursing homes in Manitowoc to be in a totally different league than the ones in Sheboygan. Finally, Manitowoc has the distinction of being the fourteenth best city in all of Wisconsin according to our rankings.
As mentioned above, this city's nursing homes received a great overall grade, but we also wanted to emphasize that some of its facilities received virtually flawless health inspections the past few years. We awarded Manitowoc an elite grade of A in this category. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. In addition, Manitowoc also really excelled in the area of short-term care, where it received an A. Rounding out its profile, Manitowoc received an A- for its nursing grade and a grade of C in long-term care. Outside of its long-term care score, this place's three other grades were just about as good as it gets.
