A new report by independent monitors will gauge improvements in care and procedures at the Lubbock State Supported Living Center. All 13 centers in Texas are under review as required by a settlement agreement state lawmakers made with the Justice Department in 2009.

The latest report is the fifth in that process. It shows the Lubbock facility is in compliance in 37 of 171 provisions in the agreement. It cites progress toward compliance in 73 more.    

Among the improvements noted are the quality of occupational and physical therapy services, and alternatives to the use of restraints.

Shortages in nursing staffing is also among the areas in need of improvement.
