With 36,699 people, Oxford, Mississippi is a relatively small city. Unfortunately, there is only one nursing home there. This nursing home received an overall grade of C, so it may be worth considering. This grade unfortunately ended up on the wrong side of the national average. The best part of this facility's profile was its stellar inspection rating. Inspection grades are discussed in the following section.
This city's lone nursing home received a fairly ordinary overall grade, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly perfect health inspections in recent years. We awarded it an elite grade of A- in this area. Our inspection grades are tied to several datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This city also excelled in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a B+. In our final two categories, the city received a C for its short-term care rating and a grade of D for nursing. Even with an otherwise decent profile, a nursing grade of this caliber may be an ominous sign for nursing staffing levels.
