Top Nursing Home in Connecticut Awards 2019

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. Our nursing rating weighs quite a few datapoints, however, the primary one is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a policy of turning patients more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also was dominant in the category of short-term care, where it received a grade of A. Very few facilities received a better grade in this category. Short-term care scores are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition, this facility also received a nearly flawless government inspection report. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that category with an A. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category generally have few severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Moving on to our last category, this nursing home received a strong long-term care rating. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B+ in this area, wrapping up one of our more impressive report cards. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. It doesn't appear that this nursing home provided vaccination data. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
