With 3,418 people, Clinton, Kentucky is a small city. There are only 2 nursing homes there, which doesn't give you too many options. This place's limited supply of nursing homes were given a city grade of B. We found this city grade was considerably better than the city grade of D received by the nearby city of Paducah. If you are choosing between these places, Clinton appears to be a no brainer. This city's nursing homes are better in some categories than others, but it didn't have any weak links in any of the major categories. More information about these categories is available in the next paragraph.
To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded Clinton an A for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. In addition, Clinton also really excelled in the area of long-term care, where it received an A-. In the other categories we looked at, the city received a B- for nursing and a B- in the area of short-term care.
