There is only one nursing home located in Bentonville, Arkansas, servicing a relatively small population of 40,933 people. We were relieved to discover that its only nursing home received an excellent overall grade of B+. In fact, this is one of the three highest rated cities in all of Arkansas. The best part of this nursing home's impressive profile was its inspection reports. We discuss inspections in the next section
In addition to being an excellent nursing home overall, this city's nursing home really excelled in the area of inspections, where we gave it a grade of A-. Few places performed better in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. This facility also earned a strong long-term care grade. We gave it a B+ in this category. Rounding out its profile, we gave the city a B+ for its nursing grade and a B in the area of short-term care. We truly found Bentonville to be very competent everywhere we looked.
