Medical Staff Hours Per Patient (2019)
This facility received a strong overall score as described above, but we especially wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this area. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This facility was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an immediate risk to resident safety or health. A couple minor dings are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Among this facility's other achievements is its first-rate short-term care grade. It received one of our best grades in that area, with a grade of A-. Our short-term care ratings are arguably most critical for patients in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it offers more care from registered nurses to its residents than most facilities. The final measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. This place performed as well as just about any facility in Texas in this area with 70.4 percent of its residents returning home.
This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. This wasn't quite on par with some of its other category grades mentioned above. We analyzed the levels of nurses working for the facility, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses spent with patients, in determining our score in this category. This facility boasts a really impressive 4.7 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, of which a significant percentage were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. This is one of the better totals of nursing hours we found at any nursing home in the San Antonio area. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this place actually excelled in some of these. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category.
Long-term Care Quality
Our final area is long-term care, where we awarded this facility a B- in this category. For residents looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. It doesn't appear that this facility provided data regarding vaccinations. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
