With a population of 175,127 , Jackson, Mississippi is a fairly large metropolitan area. There are 10 nursing homes there, which gives you plenty of choices. The nursing homes here received a city grade of B-. This is comparable with most of the places in the country. One of the major highlights of this place's profile is its exemplary inspection grade, which we will address in the following paragraph.
This city received a fairly ordinary overall grade, but we really wanted to emphasize that some of the nursing homes in the city virtually flawless health inspections the past few years. We gave them an elite grade of A- in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. In addition, Jackson earned a B in the area of long-term care. Lastly, Jackson received a C for its nursing grade and a C in short-term care.
