There are just 2 nursing homes in West Frankfort, Illinois, servicing a population of 12,626 people. These nursing homes earned on average an overall grade of C. This isn't a terrible grade, but it isn't as high of a score as we had hoped for either. This grade unfortunately is on the wrong side of the national average. The best part of this place's profile was its nursing homes' stellar inspection grades. Inspection reports are discussed in the following paragraph.
Despite receiving a fairly ordinary overall grade, the nursing homes in West Frankfort performed remarkably well in our inspections category. In fact, some of its facilities received almost perfect inspection reports this year. As a result, West Frankfort received one of our best scores in that category with an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. This city's second highest score came in long-term care, where we gave it a C. In the other categories we looked at, we gave West Frankfort rock bottom grades for our short-term care and nursing areas respectively.
