Short-term Care Quality
This facility received a strong overall grade as described above, but we especially want to emphasize its excellent short-term care score. We gave them an A- in this category. Our short-term care grades are arguably more critical for individuals needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. One of this nursing home's strengths is physical therapy hours. We found that it offers more hours with physical therapists to its residents than most facilities. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in Arkansas in this area with 65.6 percent of its residents returning home.
Turning to another one of this nursing home's strengths, it also earned a very impressive inspection rating. Inspections proved to be one of its best category grades. We gave this nursing home a grade of A-. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
