This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
An additional reason we assessed this nursing home so favorably is that it received an A+ short-term care grade. This is just about as good as it gets in this category. In computing our short-term care grades, we size up the facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This grade is generally a meaningful assessment of the facility's rehabilitation. Remarkably, this nursing home provides about 50% more services from physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is a very favorable sign. The last metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the facility. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in Texas in this area with 75.6 percent of its patients returning home.
Long-term Care Quality
We also wanted to alert you to the fact that this facility was given an impressive grade of A in our long-term care category. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home provided vaccination data. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Moving on to the next category, this facility also performed admirably in the nursing category. In fact, we gave it an A- for that category. This topped off truly elite report card. The nursing grade weighs a variety of data points. The most heavily weighted one is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This place provided 4.1 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is among the better totals in the country. A significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the most skilled levels of nurses. We were really impressed by these figures. On top of offering impressive levels of care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. By way of illustration, it performed as well as any facility in Texas in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We view these data points as predictive indicators of the caliber of nursing care being provided.
