Arcadia, Louisiana offers just two nursing homes to choose from, so you have relatively limited options. This city received a city grade of C based on its overall nursing home quality. This is not a strong city grade. We also looked at the nursing homes in the nearby city of West Monroe, which received a city grade of D. While neither city received a favorable grade, Arcadia actually looks like a better option. One of the best aspects of this city's profile is its remarkable inspection grade, which is addressed in the following paragraph.
While its overall score was somewhat average, this city's nursing homes performed spectacularly well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded the city an A for that category, which is one of our best scores. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. The city also fared well in the category of health long-term care with a grade of B. In the last two categories, Arcadia earned terrible grades for our nursing and short-term care areas respectively.
