Short-term Care Quality
In addition to being a strong facility overall, this facility also excelled in our short-term care rating, where it received an A+. In calculating our short-term care grades, we size up the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This area is often a useful measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation. This place is the gold standard in terms of skilled nursing staffing. The facility supplied about 50% more registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. This is what we look for when grading a facility in this category. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in Texas in this area with 80.6 percent of its patients returning home.
The next category we looked at was inspections, where this facility also received an A+ grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. It doesn't look like we were able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Another strength for this facility is long-term care, where it was given an A+ grade. This is just about as elite as it gets in this area. For prospective patients seeking a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. It does not appear that this facility submitted information on its vaccination levels. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
In the final category we looked at, this nursing home was awarded high scores in the category of nursing as well. Consequently, it received an A+. This left it as one of the few of nursing homes we gave A+'s in all four categories. We weighed the levels of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses spent with residents, in computing our rating in this area. This facility provides an incredible 11.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Out of that total, many of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. On top of offering impressive levels of care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. For example, it performed as well as any nursing home in the nation in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these areas as reliable measures of the quality of nursing care provided.
