In addition to performing well overall, this facility received a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it earned one of our highest scores in that category with an A+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

It fared as well as just about any facility in Arkansas in this area with 64.9 percent of its residents returning home.

Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a system of moving residents even once per day.
