Please continue reading to learn more about how this city's nursing homes performed in our category grades.
We wanted to note that this city's inspection grade was superior to its overall grade. In fact, we awarded Clayton a grade of B+ for its inspection grade, which is one of our higher scores. Arguably the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. The city earned a B in our short-term care category. Lastly, Clayton received a C for nursing and a grade of F for long-term care. Even with an otherwise respectable performance, this city's poor long-term care rating may be an issue for many people.
