With a population of 12,865 people, Herrin, Illinois is a relatively small city. There are just 2 nursing homes there, which doesn't give you too many choices. Sadly, we gave this city a city grade of D, which is a sign that these nursing homes generally did not fare well in our ratings. We assessed the facilities in the nearby city of Carbondale, which also received a city grade of D. Both cities received forgettable reviews in our assessment. Despite all this, one of the few highlights of this place's profile is its impressive inspection score. You can continue reading to find out about inspections and other category scores
This city's nursing homes received an abysmal overall grade, however, we wanted to acknowledge its facilities relatively impressive inspections the past few years. We gave it a B in this category. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Surprisingly, this city performed better in the area of nursing as well, where we gave it a C for that category. In the other categories we looked at, the city earned a C for its short-term care grade and a grade of F in the area of long-term care. In spite of an otherwise respectable profile, a long-term care rating of this caliber may be a problem for some people.
