Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Arguably the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Unfortunately, it does not look like we have information on deficiency's for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
In addition, this nursing home received elite marks in the category of short-term care. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that category with a grade of A+. In computing our short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to devise a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that returned home from the nursing home. We found that 7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home Texas in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of turning patients more often.
Long-term Care Quality
In the last category we rated, this facility was awarded a very strong grade of A in our long-term care category. With this grade, the facility completed a straight A report card. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. It does not appear that this facility provided information on its vaccination levels. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
