Ocean Springs, Mississippi offers only two nursing homes to choose from, so you don't have too many options to choose from. We awarded this relatively small group of nursing homes a city grade of B, which is a good grade. For comparison's sake, we also assessed the nursing homes in the nearby city of Biloxi, which received a city grade of F. We found Ocean Springs to be a far better option. This city's report card is also very consistent as it didn't receive a single weak category grade either. You can read more about these in the next paragraph.
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, many of the facilities in Ocean Springs performed remarkably well in the category of inspections. In fact, some of the nursing homes in the city received virtually flawless inspection reports this year. Consequently, we awarded it one of our highest ratings in that category with an A-. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Ocean Springs earned a B+ in the area of nursing. In the last two categories, this place were awarded a B- in our long-term care category and a B- in short-term care.
