With 35,421 people, Clinton, Maryland is a small city. There are only 2 nursing homes there, which doesn't give you too many options. This place's nursing homes were given a city grade of B-. We actually found this city grade was better than the grade we gave the nearby city of District Heights. With District Heights receiving a terrible grade, Clinton certainly appears to be a better bet. One of the major highlights of this place's report card is its remarkable inspection rating, which you can find in the next section.
Despite receiving a somewhat average overall grade, this city performed especially well in our inspections category. In fact, some of the nursing homes in the city received virtually flawless inspection reports this year. Consequently, we awarded Clinton one of our best grades in that area with an A-. Inspection ratings account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. In addition, the city earned a B for the city's short-term care rating. In the last two categories, Clinton earned grades of B- and D for our nursing and long-term care areas respectively. Despite otherwise respectable category grades, this city's poor long-term care score could be a problem for many prospective residents.
