Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

On top of earning a great overall score, this facility received an A+ in the area of short-term care. In our short-term care assessment, we strive to create a valuable gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess the facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. This nursing home is above the national average both in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents. These are generally good indicators of quality short-term care. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in Texas in this area with 67.3 percent of its residents returning home. For most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive category grades, this nursing home also excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A. Not many nursing homes performed as well in this area. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple minor dings are not something to panic about.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. Nursing ratings are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This nursing home boasts a really impressive 4.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, of which a significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the more highly trained levels of nurses. On top of providing impressive levels of care, this facility also performed well in many of the quality-based metrics we looked at. For example, in terms of the number of its patients sustaining falls which lead to major injury, this place performed better than the national average. This is often a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next area we assessed is long-term care, where this nursing home received a B. Believe it or not, this ended up being this facility's weakest category. A facility is doing something right when it's poorest score still beats out most other nursing homes. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. One of the data points we considered after this facility's above average nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are a great way to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for seniors. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
