While its overall grade was as bad as it gets, the nursing homes in Little Rock performed favorably in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded it a B for that category, which is one of our higher scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. Surprisingly, this city also performed decently in our nursing category, where it received a B- in that area. In the other categories we looked at, the city were awarded a C for its long-term care score and a grade of D in short-term care.
