To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively minor. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home really excelled in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a score of A. Not many facilities performed better in this area. With our short-term care assessment, we try to forge a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. It does not appear that this facility submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. This facility fared much better in the final datapoint we looked at in this category, which was the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. This place performed as well as just about any nursing home in Texas in this metric with 77.9 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, at most facilities, fewer than half of the short-term patients are able to return home.
In addition, this facility also received favorable nursing grades this year. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Our nursing score looks at the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we assessed is long-term care, which proved to be this facility's worst area. It received a lowly F in this area, which is obviously somewhat disappointing. Facilities that don't fare well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. One of the criteria we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. It does not appear that this nursing home submitted vaccination data. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.59 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
