SUTTON, Circuit Judge. After Marilyn Hopkins died in a nursing home, her estate sued the owners and operators of the nursing home (together, “Preferred Care”) in Kentucky state court, raising several claims under Kentucky law. Preferred Care asked a federal court to enforce the arbitration provision in Hopkins’ admissions agreement. The district court obliged— compelling arbitration, enjoining Hopkins from proceeding in the state court action, and staying the federal case until arbitration concluded. Hopkins appealed the order. Preferred Care moved to dismiss for lack of appellate jurisdiction. Because the Federal Arbitration Act forbids us from hearing these challenges, we must dismiss the appeal.
