Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to draw your attention to its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. Our inspection ratings are tied to datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. While this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's more impressive category grades was in the area of long-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B. It actually fared better than most facilities in this area. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are kept in good health. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is better than most nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Arkansas Nursing and Rehabilitation Center?
We were surprised to find that this facility also excelled in the category of nursing. In fact, we awarded it an impressive grade of D for that category, which is one of our best grades. The nursing grade is based on a variety of subcategories. The most heavily weighted factor is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This statistic is significantly below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these datapoints to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our final category, this nursing home really didn't fare well in this area either. Due to a poor grade of F in short-term care, this is about as terrible as it gets. Our short-term care scores are arguably most important for patients in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Considering its score in this category, we weren't stunned to learn that this facility is well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the data we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected to find. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3.6 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below the national average.
