Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless inspection reports in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Our inspection scores weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this category usually have few severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we also wanted to note that this facility received impressive long-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our better grades in this category, with a grade of B. This proved to be the facility's second highest score. Facilities that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Corpus Christi Nursing and Rehabilitation Center?
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. When determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we assess the amount of time nurses commit to patients and the skill levels of the nurses. 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. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This facility performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these datapoints to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our next area, this facility really didn't fare very well. Due to an abysmal grade of F in short-term care, this was this nursing home's worst category grade. In determining our short-term care grades, we size up a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This rating is typically a fair measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last measure we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 5.1 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below average.
