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 C received by the nearby city of San Bernardino. While that is not a terrible grade, 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.
This city's nursing homes received a strong overall grade, but we especially wanted to point out that some of its nursing homes received nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave Barstow an impressive grade of A in this area. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. Barstow also performed spectacularly well in the area of short-term care, with an A- for this category. Wrapping up its impressive profile, the city earned strong grades for our nursing and long-term care areas as well.
