With 127,302 people, Racine, Wisconsin is a moderately populated city. Surprisingly, there are just 3 nursing homes in the city, which is not quite as many as we expected in a city of this size. This small group of facilities were awarded on average an overall grade of B, which is a very solid rating for the city. This is an average city grade nationally, which is nothing to be ashamed of. We were also pleased to find that this place's nursing homes did not have any bad scores in any of the four major categories. Additional information about these categories is available in the next paragraph.
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this city performed remarkably well in short-term care. In fact, we awarded its facilities a grade of A- for this category, which is one of our highest scores. High end grades in this category generally mean a city's facilities offer favorable physical therapy staffing levels. Racine received quality inspection reports this year as well, earning a B+ in that category. In the other categories we looked at, we gave the city a B+ for its nursing rating and a grade of B- in the area of long-term care.
