The Waters of White Hall is an average-sized nursing home in White Hall, Arkansas. Featuring an overall grade of D, this is a relatively poor nursing home. This wasn't the worse nursing home we looked at, however, we'd still be very reluctant to recommend it. 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.

Although this facility's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually received a very good grade in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for that category, which is one of our better grades. Our inspection ratings are based on several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. 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 with this deficiency, this was still a relatively favorable report.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. In that category, we gave this facility an C. We analyzed the levels of nurses working for the facility, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses were with residents, in computing our rating in this area. With 4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, this place surpassed the national average. We also look at the qualifications of these nurses and add more weight to hours worked by skilled nurses. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed admirably in this datapoint. Avoiding major falls is typically a reliable indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Many falls can be prevented if a nursing home provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we graded is short-term care, where this facility was given a C in this area. Our short-term care grades are based on the facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. The final metric we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we looked at is long-term care. We gave it a grade of C in this category. This is not a bad grade in this area. Our long-term care grade is commonly used to judge a nursing home's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a rehabilitation facility. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. It doesn't look like this nursing home submitted information on its vaccination levels. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
