With just two nursing homes in the city, you only have a couple of options to choose from in Newport, Arkansas. We gave this city a city grade of C based on its overall nursing home quality. This is not a great city grade. This grade is below average by national standards. One of the better aspects of this city's report card is its nursing homes' impressive inspection ratings, which you can find in the following section.
This city's nursing homes' overall grade was propped up by its favorable government inspections in recent years. We awarded the city one of our better scores in this category, with a B+. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This city's next best category was long-term care, where we gave it a grade of B- in this area. In the other categories we looked at, this place earned a B- in our nursing category and a grade of D in short-term care. In spite of otherwise respectable category grades, this place's poor short-term care score could be concerning for people looking for rehabilitation..
