Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home really fared well in long-term care. In fact, we gave it an impressive grade of A- for that area. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
This nursing home also excelled in inspections, where it earned an B+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Does this page answer your questions about Community Care Center of Hondo?
The next area we looked at was nursing, where we gave this facility an F. This was definitely one of this facility's major weaknesses. Nursing grades are based largely on nurse staffing levels. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This facility fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we looked at was short-term care, which turned out to be this facility's worst category. It received an F for this category, which is obviously a major concern. Short-term care grades are often used to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. With its abysmal grade in this category, we weren't surprised to learn this place offers significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other nursing homes. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents that were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.2 percent of its residents returning home. This was quite a bit below the national average.
