With just two nursing homes in the city, you only have a few choices in Leakesville, Mississippi. Despite not having a ton of nursing homes, this city's nursing homes received an excellent city grade of B+. We also looked at the nursing homes in the nearby city of Laurel. We found the nursing homes in Leakesville to be in a totally different league than the ones in Laurel. Fortunately, this city didn't have any weak links in any of the four major categories. More information about its category grades can be found in the next paragraph.
As mentioned above, this city's nursing homes received a strong overall grade, but we especially wanted to emphasize that some of the city's nursing homes received almost perfect health inspections in recent years. We awarded Leakesville an elite grade of A+ for this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively minor. The city performed extremely well in our long-term care category as well. Consequently, we gave it an A- in that category. In our final two categories, this place earned a B+ for nursing and a C for short-term care.
