Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't grade this facility favorably overall, we actually gave it an excellent grade in the category of inspections, where it received an A. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid facilities with a list of severe deficiencies flagged. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's second most favorable area was its long-term care grade, where it was given a C. In determining our long-term care scores, we scrutinize the personal care offered to a nursing home's patients. Once we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinates 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Bartow Center?
This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. When calculating our nursing ratings, we weigh both staffing levels and the skill levels of the nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at is short-term care. This nursing home was given a bottom of the barrel grade of F in this area. Our short-term care grade is often used to assess a facility's rehabilitation services. To have highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. Considering its weak rating in this area, we weren't stunned to learn that this place offers far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely wasn't a strength for this facility. We found that just 3.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
