One of the reasons this ended up being a quality nursing home is it received an A+ in our inspections category. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. You can not go wrong with a deficiency-free inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
Among this nursing home's other achievements is its elite short-term care grade. We awarded them one of our most favorable grades in that area, with a score of A. In our short-term care grade, we endeavor to create a fair gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that it performed as well as just about any facility in Arkansas in this metric with 68.4 percent of its patients returning home. At most facilities, less than half of their short-stay patients are able to return home.
This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. Our nursing grade is based on many components, most of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed is nursing, turned out to be this nursing home's weakest area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in this category. This really was one of the few dings of a strong report card. Nursing homes that do not score well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. It doesn't look like this nursing home submitted information about vaccinations. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best score in this category.
