West Memphis is a city with a population of 26,069 people. There are 2 nursing homes in the city to choose from.
While its overall score was abysmal, we actually awarded this city's nursing homes a B for our inspections rating. This category clearly isn't the source of its concerning overall grade. Our inspection scores weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid facilities with a bunch of deficiencies flagged. Shockingly, the city performed well in the area of nursing, where it earned a B in that category. In the other categories we looked at, the city were awarded a C for short-term care and a grade of D in long-term care. In spite of an otherwise respectable profile, a long-term care rating of this caliber may be concerning for some prospective residents.
