With a population of 48,264 people, Vicksburg, Mississippi is a relatively small city. There are just 2 nursing homes there, which doesn't give you too many options to choose from. We gave the nursing homes here a strong city grade of B+. Even with just a couple of nursing homes, this is still an impressive city grade. In fact, this city's city grade was far better than the city grade of facilities in the local city of Jackson. While the nursing homes in Jackson are not that bad, we found Vicksburg to be in a totally different league. We were able to find multiple facilities in the city with grades of B or better. These nursing homes would be a good place to begin your search.
In addition to having excellent nursing homes on the whole, this place really excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an A+. Very few cities earned a better grade in this category. Inspection ratings are tied to pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this category typically have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. We also wanted to emphasize that we gave the city an A- in our long-term care category. In our final two categories, this place received a B- in our short-term care category and a B- in the area of nursing.
