With 144,195 people, Bridgeport, Connecticut is medium size city. Amazingly, there is only one nursing home in the city. We awarded the city's lone nursing home a grade of C, so it may be worth looking at. For comparison's sake, we also looked at the nursing homes in the nearby city of Wallingford. With Wallingford receiving an awful city grade, we found the facility in Bridgeport to be in a totally different league than most of the facilities in Wallingford. While this likely isn't a bad option, we would not blame you if you want to explore nursing homes in other cities.
While its overall grade was fairly ordinary, we awarded this city's only nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Our inspection ratings are based on several datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this category typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This nursing home also excelled in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a B+. Finally, this place received terrible grades for our short-term care and nursing areas respectively.
