With 35,421 people, Clinton, Maryland is a small city. There are only 3 nursing homes there, which doesn't give you too many options. These facilities did not really stand out from a quality perspective either. The city received a city grade of C, which is not one of our better scores at the city level. As bad as this city's grade is, we actually found gave the nearby city of District Heights an even worse grade. With District Heights receiving an awful grade, we would advise you to be very selective in either city. One of the best aspects of this place's profile is its remarkable inspection reports, which is addressed in the following paragraph.
This city's nursing homes received a fairly ordinary overall grade, but we really would like to point out that some of its facilities virtually perfect health inspections in recent years. We gave it an impressive grade of A- in this area. Our inspection scores weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. The second best grade we gave Clinton in any category was its short-term care grade, where it received a B-. Finally, Clinton received grades of C and D for our nursing and long-term care categories respectively. Even with an otherwise respectable performance, this place's weak long-term care grade may be concerning for many people.
