With three nursing homes in the city, there are only a couple of options in Sikeston, Missouri. We gave this city a city grade of C based on the quality of its nursing homes. This is not a strong city score. We also assessed the nursing homes in the nearby city of Paducah. While we aren't writing glowing reviews about either city, we found the facilities in Sikeston to be a better bet. One of the major highlights of this city's profile is its exemplary inspection grade, which is addressed in the next paragraph.
While its overall grade was not elite, this city performed spectacularly well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded the city a grade of A for that category, which is one of our best scores. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this category generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. This city's next best category is long-term care, where it earned a grade of B- in this category. Finally, we awarded the city rock bottom grades for our nursing and short-term care categories respectively.
