Clinton, Mississippi offers only two nursing homes to choose from, which is a limited selection. We awarded the nursing homes here a world class city grade of A-. Even with just a few nursing homes, this is still a great achievement. We also assessed the facilities in the nearby city of Brandon, which which also appears to be a decent option. Nevertheless, we found the nursing homes in Clinton to be in a totally different league than the ones in Brandon. This city's report card is also consistent as it did not receive a single weak category grade either. You can read more about these in the next paragraph.
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this city's nursing homes performed extremely well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded its facilities a grade of A+ for this category, which is one of our best scores. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this area tend to have few of these severe deficiencies. We also wanted to point out that we gave the city an A for our long-term care category. Rounding out its quality profile, we gave Clinton favorable scores for our short-term care and nursing categories as well.
