What is the staffing ratio at Denton Rehabilitation & Nursing Center?

The staffing ratio is a measure used by the Texas Department of Aging & Disability Services (DADS) to determine the number of direct care staff to the number of residents in the facility. A higher number means that the facility has more employees per resident to provide services.

The staffing ratios at Denton Rehabilitation & Nursing Center meet or exceed the State requirements. Our computer system allows us to take into account the medical needs of the residents on each hall so that we can ensure that each hall is adequately staffed.

Do you accept “Medicaid Pending”?

Medicaid Pending means that someone has applied for Medicaid and is awaiting final approval from the Medicaid office.

When someone is approved for Nursing Home Medicaid they keep $60.00 of their monthly income, and the remainder of their income (called the Applied Income) is paid to the Nursing Facility. Medicaid pays the facility the remainder of the cost of care.

It can take several months for someone to be approved for Medicaid. During this time, the nursing home resident would pay their Applied Income to the Nursing Facility. Once the Medicaid application is approved, the State will reimburse the Facility for the cost of care from the day the Medicaid Application was received in their office. If the Medicaid application is not approved, the resident or their responsible party would be responsible for any outstanding charges.

Denton Rehabilitation & Nursing Center will accept residents whose Medicaid is pending on a case-by-case basis.

Does the payor source determine quality of care?

No, the payor source  (Medicare, Medicaid, Private Pay, etc.) does not determine the quality of care. We are committed to providing the highest quality of care to every resident of Denton Rehabilitation & Nursing Center, regardless of payor source.

We want our residents to feel as comfortable as possible. For a short-term rehabilitation stay we recommend that you bring:

  • Comfortable clothing suitable for therapy sessions
  • Sneakers or other shoes with a solid base and a rubber sole
  • Toiletries
  • Nightgown or pajamas
  • Photos of family or other mementos that will help you feel more comfortable

A long-term resident may wish to personalize their room a bit more. Each room is furnished with an armoire or closet and chest of drawers which provide ample space to display pictures. Recliners and larger pictures may be brought in as space and circumstances permit, and with the consent of the Administrator.
