Top Nursing Home in Arkansas Awards 2021
Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it earned a very impressive inspection score. In fact, inspections is its best category grade. In that category, we awarded it a grade of A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. 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
We also gave this facility a score of A- for our long-term care score. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a deadly condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home does not take any chances. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. Nursing grades are based largely on nurse staffing levels. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we scored was short-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of B-. This actually was this nursing home's least impressive category. This is still not a terrible score. Our short-term care grades are thought to be most meaningful for patients needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. We were not able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 4.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
