Please note our records indicate that Matagorda House Healthcare Center has changed ownership recently and while our data on this page is up-to-date there is a chance that the quality of this facility may change under new management.

Matagorda House Healthcare Center is one of just a few facilities in Bay City, Texas. We gave this nursing home a bottom of the barrel overall grade based on the data we assessed. Although the city grade in Bay City which is also just a D, you still should be able to do better. Lastly, this nursing home's ownership changed in the last year, so we will need to monitor it to confirm it is able to raise its standard of care going forward.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

While this facility's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a C for that category, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 6 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in categories G through L. This indicates that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent danger to patient safety or health. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's second best score was long-term care, but even there it earned just a D in that area. This still happens to be a well below average grade. For prospective patients looking for a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 98.630135 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. Our nursing score consists of quite a few factors, however, the paramount consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were well below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we scored was short-term care. We gave it an F for this area, which is a poor grade. In the area of short-term care, we seek to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Based on its score in this area, we weren't surprised to discover that this facility is well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the figures we assessed. The last metric we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics sunk this nursing home's short-term care grade.
