Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is one of our better scores. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of those deficiencies. This place had 3 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This indicates that inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to present an imminent danger to resident safety or health. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
Short-term Care Quality
We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D for our short-term care score and that actually wound up as its next most favorable category. Our short-term care grades are believed to be more meaningful for individuals needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Barbour Court Nursing and Rehabilitation Center?
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. Our nursing score is mostly tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we assessed is long-term care. We gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is a very poor grade. Nursing homes that don't score well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. We were concerned by the fact that this facility vaccinated just 90.27778 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
