There are two facilities in Tylertown, Mississippi, which at least gives you a few choices. We awarded the nursing homes in this city a first-rate city grade of A-. Even with only a couple of facilities, this is still quite an achievement. By way of comparison, we awarded the facilities in the nearby city of Mandeville a city grade of B-, which is not a bad grade. However, we found the nursing homes in Tylertown to be in a totally different league than the ones in Mandeville. We were so impressed with Tylertown that we rated it as one of the top 500 cities in the country.
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded the nursing homes in Tylertown an A+ in our inspections category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. We also awarded Tylertown a grade of A for our long-term care category. Finally, this place earned slightly below average grades for our nursing and short-term care areas.
