Registered Staff Hours
Part of the reason this proved to be a decent nursing home is it earned a very favorable nursing grade. Its nursing grade is its best category. In this area, we gave this nursing home a B+. Nursing ratings are mostly based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place Connecticut in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a policy of moving patients even once per day.
Short-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this facility a B in our short-term care category. This happens to be one of our more favorable scores. Our short-term care ratings are meaningful for people in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
The final category we assessed was long-term care, which proved to be this facility's weakest area. We gave this facility a grade of D in that category. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 92.41706 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is a few points less than we expected but still a respectable percentage. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.
