We also found that this nursing home excelled at short-term care. We awarded them a grade of A+ in this category. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 6.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in that category. There are many criteria within this grade. Most of these datapoints are tied to the quantity of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its first-rate profile, this facility also received a superb long-term care grade, with a score of A-. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are kept in good health. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is far higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Finally, this facility also earned a nearly flawless government inspection. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with an elite grade of A-. With this impressive grade, this place is one of the few nursing homes in Texas to earn straight A's. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
