The Waters of Rogers is an average-sized facility in Rogers, Arkansas. With an overall grade of F, we consider this to be a very poor facility. Based on our analysis, this facility is not a good fit for anyone. While this nursing home received suboptimal grades this year, we did want to let you know that there was a recent ownership change. We will keep an eye on their inspections and quality scores to see whether their performance warrants better scores in the future.

Short-term Care Quality
Even though we gave this facility a terrible overall score, we gave it a grade of C for our short-term care rating. Our short-term care scores are probably more important for residents in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. This nursing home has both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. The last measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Interestingly, this nursing home's awful overall score can't really be attributed to its government inspection reports. We gave it a C for inspections. We believe that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. This facility was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were category G through L deficiencies. This tells you that it dodged the more ominous categories of deficiencies. Finally, they also received 16 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is certainly not a great sign.
We were also surprised to find that this facility received a decent nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of C in that category. Our nursing grade looks at the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of training of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. Based on the data, it looks like this place provides an impressive 4.2 hours per patient per day. This is more nursing care than most nursing homes provide. In calculating our grades, we apply more weight to hours performed by more highly trained nurses such as registered or licensed nurses. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. This place performed admirably in this subcategory. Avoiding major falls is usually a good indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility offers enough nurses to assist its residents.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we scored is long-term care. For this category, we gave this nursing home a C. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find this place's vaccination data. Finally, this place keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
