Mary Wade Earns 5 Star Rating Designation by Government Agency Centers for Medicare and Medicaid

Mary Wade has maintained its 5 Star Rating by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) which is the Federal Agency that provides Medicare and Medicaid Services and additionally performs annual inspection visits to the Nation's 15,600 nursing homes.  Mary Wade is the only nursing home in New Haven with a 5 Star Rating from the Federal and State Government.

Nursing homes vary in the quality of care and services they provide to their residents. Reviewing health inspection results, staffing data, and quality measure data are 3 important ways to measure nursing home quality. This information gives you a "snap shot" of the care individual nursing homes give.  This information is important when you are faced with a decision to select a nursing home for you or members of your family.

As a result of the latest rounds of inspections Mary Wade has maintained its 5 Star Rating, which means its overall all rating is "Much Above Average".  This overall rating is comprised of three areas of focus:

  • Quality Measures
  • Staffing Measures
  • Performance during Annual Surveys.  

Mary Wade has a 5 Star Rating, "Much Above Average", in the Quality Measures, which involves clinical areas such as the:

  • Low Percentage of short-stay residents who were re-hospitalized after a nursing home admission  
  • High Percentage of short-stay residents who made improvements in function
  • Low Percentage of short-stay residents with pressure ulcers that are new or worsened
  • Effective Pain Management 
  • Low Percentage of short-stay residents who are newly administered antipsychotic medications (major tranquilizers)

Mary Wade is also given a 5 Star Rating, "Much Above Average", in the area of Staffing, which means that clinical staffing is higher in quality and in numbers, and measures the staffing levels of the following:

  • Registered Nurse (RN)
  • Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) and Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN)
  • Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)
  • Physicial Therapists (PT)

Mary Wade is given a 4 Star Rating, "Above Average", under the categories of:

  • Health Inspections
  • Complaints
  • Fire and Safety Inspections

This information is extremely helpful when faced with a decision to select a nursing home for either short term or long term care services for you or a family member.   When you are in this position it is also important to remember that neither your doctor or a hospital staff can force you to select a nursing home, by law, you and only you are the one to make this decision.  If you need guidance or advice on any of this information, you can obtain it by contacting Rosanne Mondrone at Mary Wade by calling 203.562.7222 or email at rmondrone@marywade.org, or David V. Hunter at 203.672.7810.
