One of the reasons this place is a strong facility is that it received a very impressive inspection score. Inspections turned out to be its best category. In that area, we awarded it an A. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to create an immediate risk to patient health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

This nursing home is also strong in the area of short-term care, where it was given a grade of B+. It performed better than most nursing homes in this area. Our short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. We were extremely impressed to learn that this place offers its patients substantially more hours of physical therapy than most other nursing homes. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in Connecticut in this area with 59.6 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

This facility was awarded an impressive long-term care score as well. We gave it one of our higher scores in that category with a score of B. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is typically a good sign for patient care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 98.62069 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death ailment for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't take any chances. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Historical

The final category we scored is nursing. We awarded this facility a B- in this area. Our nursing grade weighs quite a few data points, but the most important one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 3.2 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is a very low figure. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures. Although this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed well in this metric. This is typically an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a protocol of turning a resident even once per day.
