Barstow, California has just two nursing homes to choose from, which is a limited selection. We gave the nursing homes here an excellent city grade of B+. Even with only a few facilities, this is still a great sign. We found this city grade is considerably better than the city grade of B- received by the nearby city of San Bernardino. Both cities received decent grades, but Barstow appears to be on a whole other level. You can continue reading to learn more about how this city's nursing homes fared in our category grades.
In addition to having excellent nursing homes on the whole, this city really excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A-. Few cities performed better in this area. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. In addition, we also wanted to emphasize that we awarded the city an A- in our short-term care category. Wrapping up its quality report card, Barstow earned a B+ for its nursing score and a B for long-term care. We really found this place to be competent in every category.
