Nurse Quality

Grade: B

It should also be noted that this nursing home's nursing score outpaced its overall grade. We gave it a B for its nursing grade. The nursing grade consists of a handful of datapoints, but the primary one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility Texas in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a system of moving patients more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

We also gave this facility a favorable grade in short-term care. This facility received a grade of B in this category, which is one of our more impressive scores. In our short-term care assessment, we strive to craft a fair barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze the nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The final measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home also received favorable inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. This grade is also better than the facility's overall score. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This facility was assessed 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This nursing home's weakest area is long-term care, which is the final category we assessed. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F in this area. Even with multiple decent grades in other areas, this score is nevertheless concerning so we wanted to make sure you are aware. For prospective patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 96.55173 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
