You can continue reading to learn more about how this city's nursing homes performed in our category grades.
Despite receiving a fairly ordinary overall grade, this city's nursing homes performed remarkably well in our inspections category. In fact, some of the nursing homes in the city received nearly perfect inspection reports this year. As a result, we awarded Blytheville one of our highest ratings in that area with an A. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Blytheville earned its second highest score in the area of nursing, where we gave it a C, which is also respectable. In the other categories we looked at, Blytheville earned grades of C and D for our long-term care and short-term care categories respectively. In spite of otherwise respectable category grades, this city's poor short-term care grade could be an issue for people looking for rehabilitation services.
