Heber Springs, Arkansas offers only two nursing homes to choose from, so you have relatively limited options. We gave this city a city grade of C based on its overall nursing home quality. This is not a strong city score. This city's city grade was a bit better than the city grade of nursing homes in the local city of Jacksonville, which received a terrible city grade. If choosing between the two, Heber Springs looks like a better bet. You can continue reading to learn more about how this city's nursing homes fared in our category grades.
This city's overall grade was propped up by its favorable government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better grades in that area, with a grade of B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively minor. Heber Springs's second best category was nursing, where it earned a B- in this category. In the last two categories, this place earned a grade of C for its long-term care score and a grade of D for short-term care. Even with otherwise respectable category grades, this place's weak short-term care score may be a concern for people who need rehabilitation.
