Looking at them side by side though, we found the facilities in Mccomb to be a bit better than those in Hammond. Fortunately, this city's nursing homes did not have any bad scores in any of the major categories discussed below. More information about its category grades can be found in the next paragraph.
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, most of the facilities in Mccomb performed spectacularly well in terms of its inspection grade. In fact, some of its facilities received virtually flawless inspection reports this year. Consequently, the city received one of our best ratings in that category with an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. The city also received an impressive long-term care score where it received a B+ in this area. Finally, this place received a C for its nursing grade and a C in the area of short-term care.
