Short-term Care Quality
In addition to faring well in its overall grade, this facility received high marks in our short-term care rating as well. As a result, it received our highest grade in that category with an A+. Our short-term care grade is typically used to judge a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to offer high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. This nursing home excelled at the highest level in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it supplied about 50% more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than the average facility. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the facility. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in Texas in this area with 66.3 percent of its residents returning home.
Another reason we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. Our nursing rating consists of quite a few components, but the main one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This place provides an incredible 6.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Very few nursing homes provide this quantity of nursing care to their patients. Out of that total, many of the hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the more highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to offering high levels of care, this facility also excelled in the quality measures we assessed. By way of illustration, it performed as well as any nursing home in the nation in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these metrics as reliable measures of the quality of nursing care offered.
Amazingly, we also awarded this nursing home yet another A+ in the area of inspections. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. 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.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the last category, this nursing home received a highly favorable long-term care score. We gave it an A in this category, resulting in this facility receiving straight A's. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility submitted vaccination data. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
