There is unfortunately just one nursing home in Meriden, Connecticut, servicing a relatively small population of 60,912 people. Fortunately, its only nursing home received a top-notch overall grade of A+. By way of comparison, we gave the facilities in the nearby city of Hamden a city grade of B+, which is also an impressive grade. However, we found this facility in Meriden to be in a totally different league than the ones in Hamden. Headlining this place's exemplary profile is its inspection rating, which you can find in the next paragraph.
As mentioned above, this city's sole nursing home received a great overall grade, but we especially wanted to emphasize its nearly perfect health inspections the past few years. We awarded it an elite grade of A+ in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. This nursing home also earned an impressive grade of A+ in the area of long-term care. Rounding out its straight A profile, Meriden received an A in our nursing category and a grade of A in the area of short-term care.
