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.

American Banker Reports on LISC’s Black Economic Development Fund

A recent article in American Banker describes the why and how of LISC’s Black Economic Development Fund - a means to direct private capital to Black banks, CDFIs and other minority businesses. The $50 million from Netflix and Costco seeding the fund, with more in the pipeline, is a signal of a widespread “social-consciousness awakening that [the wealth gap] is a problem and its sources are systemic racism,” explains George Ashton, LISC EVP and the fund’s manager, in the story.

LISC, with Top Housing Groups, Calls for Emergency Rental Relief

In a statement issued today, LISC joins with Enterprise, National Housing Trust, Stewards of Affordable Housing for the Future, Housing Partnership Network, Housing Assistance Council and Leading Age to urge federal action on rental assistance that will protect residents and affordable housing providers affected by the pandemic. “Relief is overdue,” the groups warn, “and we can’t afford to wait any longer.”

A Pledge to Keep Small Businesses Open for Business

A $15 million donation from Wells Fargo, part of their Open for Business Fund, will help LISC match flexible Kiva crowdfunded loans for entrepreneurs of color across the U.S. Our pre-Covid collaboration with Wells and Kiva in Puerto Rico and other disinvested places has proven the transformative benefits for individuals, families and regional economies when small businesses get fast access to capital in a crisis.
