Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a strong overall score as described above, but we especially want to point out its nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. Inspection scores weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area generally have few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Among the reasons we rated this nursing home so favorably is that it received a very impressive long-term care score. Indeed, long-term care ended up being its second most impressive category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility a score of A-. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in this category it is usually a good sign for resident care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is far higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Dardanelle Nursing and Rehabilitation Center?
This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. Our nursing grade considers many subcategories. The most important variable is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This facility provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a somewhat concerning figure as it is well below average. Finally, nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses to assist its residents.
Short-term Care Quality
Our next area is short-term care, in which we gave this facility a grade of C in this area. Our short-term care ratings are presumably more critical for those requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of skilled nursing. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. It does not appear that this facility provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The final metric we looked at in this area is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below average.
