Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility performed well in our long-term care rating, with a grade of B+ in that area. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After considering the significant amount of nursing hours provided by this nursing home, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. The last datapoint we looked at is its hospitalization rate. Here we found that this place had 3.48 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Although this admittedly wasn't as impressive as most of its other scores in this category, this statistic may be skewed for some facilities based on some of the preexisting medical conditions of patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was given a favorable short-term care grade. Indeed, we awarded it an above average score of B+ in this area. With our short-term care category, we endeavor to create a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. One of this nursing home's strength is that it offers more hours of physical therapy per week to its residents. The final item we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that it performed as well as just about any facility in Texas in this area with 59.7 percent of its patients returning home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Adding to its strong resume, this facility earned a grade of B for its inspections rating. This is a well above average score in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final area we graded is nursing. We awarded this nursing home a B- in that category. There are a variety of factors included in this category. Most of these data points relate to staffing levels. With 4.9 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this nursing home surpassed the vast majority of facilities. Finally, we also factored some quality measures into our nursing grades. Specifically, we looked at the percent of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these data points as good indicators of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
