Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection grade. Its inspection grade was far superior to its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave it a grade of A. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second best category is its long-term care grade, where it was given a grade of B-. In forming our long-term care scores, we quantify the facility's personal care services. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 95.68346 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Barnegat Rehabilitation and Nursing Center?
The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. Our nursing score weighs a handful of components, many of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This facility provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a somewhat concerning figure which is well below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we rated is short-term care, which ended up being this nursing home's least impressive area. We awarded this nursing home a D in that category. Our short-term care scores are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. With a score in this range in this category, we were not stunned to learn that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility supplied substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. The final metric we considered in this category is the number of residents that returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 5 percent of its residents returning home. This was well below the national average.
