Advanced Health and Rehab of Union County is a large nursing home located in El Dorado, Arkansas. With an overall rating of F, we consider this to be a lower end nursing home. This facility didn't have any redeeming qualities. While this nursing home received suboptimal grades this year, we did want to let you know that there was a recent ownership change.

Even though this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform as poorly in the area of nursing. In fact, we gave it a C for this category. Our nursing rating focuses on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This facility provided 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed admirably in this metric.
Long-term Care Quality
Incredibly, we gave this nursing home a grade of C for its long-term care grade, which isn't a bad grade. With our long-term care assessment, we analyze the sheer volume of services offered by a facility, as well as a series of quality statistics. We would need to do a bit more research into this nursing home before opining further on this category as it appears we are missing a few datapoints for long-term care.
Short-term Care Quality
We gave this facility just a D for our short-term care rating. This is not an impressive grade. Our short-term care scores are critical for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing. This includes a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
Turning our last area of inspections, this facility received an F here. When a nursing home has this bad of an inspection score, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to patient safety. This particular facility had 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they created a threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 7 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
