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 C, which is much lower grade. Naturally, we found the nursing homes in Tylertown to be on a whole other level than the ones in Mandeville. We were so impressed with Tylertown that we ranked it as one of the top 500 cities in the country.
This city received a strong overall grade, but we also wanted to emphasize that some of its nursing homes received nearly perfect health inspections in recent years. We gave Tylertown an elite grade of A+ for this category. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category usually have few severe deficiencies. In addition, the city also really excelled in the category of long-term care, where it received an A. Wrapping up its first-rate report card, this place received an A- for its nursing rating and a grade of B in the area of short-term care.
