How to find a good nursing home or rehab facility in Texas

 

As of 5/11/17, in Houston alone, 47 facilities had state agency ratings of 13 to 50, on a scale of 100

 
May 11, 2017

An Austin certified nursing assistant (CNA) was recently arrested and charged with misdemeanor injury to the elderly by contact.

The CNA worked at a nursing and rehabilitation facility and has been accused on posting inappropriate photos of a patient on Snapchat. One photo showed the elderly patient’s hand covered in feces. Another photo someone touching the patient’s nose with a tissue, in an apparent effort to get her to touch her nose with her soiled hand.

The crime of injury to an elderly person

Texas Penal Code Section 22.04 states that a person commits the criminal offense of injury to an elderly or disabled individual if they intentionally, knowingly, recklessly, or with criminal negligence, by act or intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly by omission, causes to a child, elderly individual, or disabled individual: serious bodily injury; serious mental deficiency, impairment, or injury; or bodily injury.

This criminal can be applied to the owner, operator, or employee of a group home, nursing facility, intermediate care facility for persons with mental retardation, or other institutional care facility under certain circumstances.

Nursing home and rehabilitation facility negligence

Separate and apart from the criminal side of how facilities treat the elderly, patients and their families can sue in civil court to seek compensation for mistreatment.

As an experienced Houston medical malpractice lawyer, I have rarely seen deliberate incidents of patient abuse, such as the one described above.

I have handled numerous cases, though, where serious injuries or death occurred because of nursing inattention. Frequent issues include medication errors, overdoses, and the failure of the nursing staff to turn patients or take preventive measures to prevent bedsores from forming. The standard of care requires nurses and CNAs to prevent too much pressure on sensitive skin and to keep the patients’ skin clean and dry, even when accidents happen because they cannot get up and go to the bathroom.

If you or someone you care for has been neglected in a nursing home or rehabilitation hospital setting, call 281-580-8800, for a free consultation with a medical negligence attorney Painter Law Firm.

You can also report suspected abuse to an elderly person to the Texas Abuse Hotline, at 1-800-252-5400, or www.txabusehotline.org.

Researching nursing and rehab facilities

Clients frequently ask me about how they can find out which nursing or rehab facility provides good care. In addition to visiting the facilities and talking with existing patients or residents, there are some online tools that are helpful.

Currently, the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) is the state agency that deals with licensing, inspection, and regulatory issues concerning facilities that provide aging and disability services. DADS is in the middle of a two-year transition where its mission will be taken over by Texas Health and Human Services (HHS). As a result, DADS will cease to exist by September 1, 2017.

Until that time, you can use this website to search for long term care facilities and ratings. The scores are updated each month.
