The Waters of Woodland Hills is one of a multitude of nursing home options you can choose from in Little Rock, Arkansas. Featuring an overall rating of F, we consider this to be a very poor nursing home. In our grading scheme, this is ranked as one of the bottom three nursing homes in Little Rock based on the data we assessed. With so many other nursing homes in the city, you may simply want to look elsewhere. Lastly, this facility had an ownership change in the last year. Hopefully, new ownership is able to elevate its quality standards.

While this facility's overall score was rock bottom, it didn't perform as badly in nursing. We gave it a C for this area. When determining our nursing grades, we factor in both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This facility provides an impressive 4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these to be good indicators of quality of nursing care.
Interestingly, this facility's abysmal overall grade can't really be attributed to its government inspection reports. We awarded it a grade of C for our inspections rating. Inspection grades are tied to datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This place had 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were category G through L deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Finally, they also received 13 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is certainly not a great sign.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also didn't grade out poorly in the area of short-term care. In fact, we gave it a C in that category, which happens to be among its more favorable grades. Short-term care scores are crucial for people needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. The last measure we looked at in this area is the number of residents that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the next category, we awarded this facility a grade of D for our long-term care category. This is the nursing home's worst category score. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is typically a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the place is not as well-staffed. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home provided vaccination data. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
