There are only 2 nursing homes in Shawano, Wisconsin, servicing a relatively small population of 17,002 people. This place's nursing homes received a world class city grade of A-, so what this city lacks in quantity, it makes up for by having high quality nursing homes. We found this city grade is even better than the city grade of B received by the nearby city of Green Bay. Both cities received impressive grades, but Shawano appears to be an even better bet. On top of this, Shawano is one of the top twenty five rated cities in the state of Wisconsin. This is a reminder that Wisconsin has a long list of cities with excellent nursing homes.
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, most of the facilities in Shawano performed remarkably well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded the city an A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. Inspection scores are tied to many datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. We also wanted to point out that we gave Shawano an A- for our long-term care rating. Rounding out its quality report card, the city received a grade of B+ for nursing and a B for short-term care. This place really didn't have any weak links based on our assessment.
