Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this facility earned an A+ inspection grade. This is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can pay to a nursing home. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also received an A+ for its nursing grade. Our nursing score is primarily associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 4.2 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This was one of the better totals we found. In addition, a significant percentage of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. These are both really impressive figures. In addition to providing high levels of care, this place also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. By way of illustration, it performed as well as any nursing home in Texas in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these datapoints as reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care provided.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also received an A+ for its short-term care score. With our short-term care category, we strive to create a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides more care with registered nurses to its residents than the average nursing home. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This place outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes in this area with 68.2 percent of its patients returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

The final area we looked at is long-term care, where this facility received a grade of A. This completed a very impressive report card. Very few nursing homes received an A- or better in in each area we assessed. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 96.42857 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is often a deadly illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
