Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great facility overall, it also earned A+ government inspections recently. Its inspections are virtually perfect. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also was given a impressive short-term care score. Indeed, this ended up being its second strongest category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Our short-term care grades are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. This proved to be more of a strength for this nursing home. It performed as well as just about any facility in Arkansas with 78.4 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, at most facilities, less than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

The third area we assessed was long-term care. Adding to its strong resume, this nursing home also excelled in that area. In fact, it received a of A- for that area. For prospective patients in need of a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. Unfortunately, it does not look like this facility provided information about vaccinations. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the last area, this facility also was awarded a first-rate nursing grade, with a grade of B+. This finished off a first-rate report card. The nursing grade is based on quite a few factors, but the paramount one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
