Jacksonville, Arkansas is a relatively small city with 37,979 people. It has just one nursing home, which is fewer than we were hoping for. Sadly, this nursing home was awarded an overall grade of F, which is a poor grade. This grade is about as bad as it gets and it raises some major red flags. If you aren't deterred by this facility's report card, feel free to continue reading to find out about its category scores. This city's nursing homes actually fared well in short-term care for example.
While its overall rating was as bad as it gets, we actually awarded this city's lone nursing home a B for our short-term care category. This category clearly was not the source of this place's alarming overall grade. Short-term care grades are typically used to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Moving onto our next category, the city received grade of just D in the category of inspections. Unfortunately, this is its highest grade. In the last two categories, the city received concerningly weak grades in our nursing and long-term care areas respectively.
