Overall RatingsJewish Senior Services, a nursing home, currently has an overall 1-star rating, which is the lowest possible. This places it in the bottom 20% of facilities in terms of overall rating, and this rating is also lower than the state average. In addition to this, its health inspection rating stands at 1-star, once again the lowest possible, sliding it into the bottom 10% of facilities in terms of health inspection ratings. This is unfortunate since this rating is also lower than the state average. However, there's a glimmer of hope reflected in its quality rating. Jewish Senior Services shines with an impressive 4-star quality rating, the second highest possible, which slots it in the top half of facilities in terms of quality rating. This rating slightly surpasses the state average, thus demonstrating their commitment to quality care despite other shortcomings.
Staff RatingsJewish Senior Services, a nursing home facility, despite its low 1-star staff rating, performs positively in several key areas. It falls in the top 30% of its peers in nursing aid staffing hours per resident per day, boasting 2.59 hours, significantly higher than the state's average of 2.14 hours. This higher-than-average trend is also echoed in LPN staffing hours per resident per day, where the establishment is in the top half of facilities with 0.94 hours, which is notably higher than the state's average of 0.82. Despite falling within the top half in terms of RN staffing hours per resident per day, the facility has slightly less hours (0.57) than the state's budgeted 0.72. The pattern is similar for licensed staffing hours per resident per day; despite being in the top half, it slightly falls short compared to the state average, 1.51 as opposed to 1.55. Nevertheless, the facility impressively ranks in the top 20% with regard to physical therapist staffing hours per resident per day. Its average is 0.12 hours compared to the state's 0.09 hours per day.
Covid DataJewish Senior Services, a prominent nursing home, ranks in the top 30% of facilities for maintaining a high up-to-date vaccination rate among its residents. With a resident vaccination rate significantly greater than the state average at 85.1% compared to 68.5%, the commitment for effective care and safety is evident. However, while the facility ranks in the top half in terms of staff vaccination rates, the current rate of 17.9% is notably less than the state average of 24.1%. The discrepancy affirms that although the resident health is prioritized, further initiatives are necessary to increase the staff vaccination rate to meet and exceed the state average.
Quality MeasuresJewish Senior Services is a recognized nursing home that takes pride in its 4-star quality measure rating - one of the highest attainable. However, it falls among the lowest 40% of facilities considering the percentage of residents who were given antipsychotic medication, with a rate of 16.3%, slightly higher than the state average of 16.09%. On the positive side, it ranks in the top 30% concerning the use of antianxiety or hypnotic medication. Its rate of 13.02% is surprisingly lower than the state's 17.1%. The facility is also among the top 40% when considering the percentage of residents with ulcers, with its 5.57% significantly less than the state's 6.41%. However, it falls in the bottom half when it comes to the distribution of the flu vaccine to residents – at 97.07%, it's higher than the state's 92.71%, but still not in the top percentiles. Jewish Senior Services also scores poorly on administering the pneumococcal vaccine. With 82.73% of its residents receiving the shot, it lies within the region's bottom 20%, although it's only slightly less than the state's rate of 83.32%.
Emergency and Hospitalization Quality MeasuresJewish Senior Services, a nursing home, has statistics that place it differently within various performance criteria. The facility finds itself in the lower 30% concerning hospitalizations per 1000 days, with a rate of 2.27, which is notably higher than the state's average of 1.93. However, the institution excels in the area of outpatient emergency department visits per 1000 days, where it finds itself in the top 20% of facilities. Its rate of 0.48 is significantly less than the state's average of 0.96. The facility is also in the top 40% of facilities regarding the proportion of short-stay residents who have outpatient emergency department visits, with a percentage of 8.73% which is lower than the state's rate of 12.34%. However, concerning the percentage of short-stay residents who were rehospitalized after a nursing home admission, Jewish Senior Services falls into the bottom half of facilities with a rate of 23.43%, slightly less than the state's 23.58%.

I would give this place a zero if I could. We have an elder family member who was brought here after reconstructive surgery. She was told the wrong entrance, she received no nurse help or guidance, medical help, or welcoming. We found the room on our own, but could not find a nurse or any help for hours. We were then told they only bathe their… ເພີ່ມເຕີມ clients on the weekend even if they haven't taken a shower since surgery five days prior -the water was literally shut off. The narrow beds are cots, and no security. The list goes on...don't let anyone you care about it use the in patient rehab unless they simply want a poorly run hotel with disgusting sheets and towels.
i AM so impressed by the Jewish home. One of the reasons I chose it for my sister was the impression I got when I came to see it at the previous location. The main decider for me was the friendly, kind,… ເພີ່ມເຕີມ caring and always a smile in greeting from every single staff member I met or just passed by. They never make me feel like I am bothering them when I have things to inquire about. Most of the residents too usually had a big smile and a hello showing me that they were in a pleasant place. And I was not wrong. The icing on the cake was learning that there was a brand new home going up where my sister would have her own private room. She had to give up her independent life in her own apartment and now she can feel that sense of privacy again. The homelike set up is wonderful. The Family Day every September is an absolute joy for all. There are so many things I could point out but I will simply say THANK YOU to Jewish Senior Services!
My mom transitioned to the Jewish home a week ago for long term care. We are beyond blessed she got in! There is no better place in CT! Separate homes in complex, gorgeous private rooms and bathrooms for all residents, best care, great made to order food, best activities... You could not ask for more... Thank you Jewish Senior Services you are the Best of the best!
If your looking for a job DONT WORK HERE . they don't appreciate all the work you have to do especially on tandent east . they are very unorganized. They favor one another if they don't like you they will find the littlest reason to get you written up . evrybody is quitting because management is horrible. They aren't understanding what so ever . they give residents too much power to the point you don't feel like your HELPING it feels like your their slave. I wouldn't recommend this place to any of my highest experienced friends or family. It isn't worth it. The only good thing about this place is the wage per hour but this place will break you down and have you going crazy . do yourself a favor and skip this job application you'll wonna quit before yu even start. Save yourself the tears, stress and sweat. Trust me.
My husband , Gerald Ohara was,admitted 10/1/14 to K3 with Alzheimers' The physical custodial care was very good as was the medical care. Gerry's AD progressed rapidly to paranoia, and I experienced the psychiatric services to be woefully inadequate. The psychiatrist is only on site one day a week. The APRN only there 2 days a week, and cannot be contacted after she leaves. When Gerry's symptoms excavated the APRN wanted to check his urine to rule out a urinary tract infection which can cause increased psych. symptoms. Her order was written on a Monday, and never executed. Gerry's paranoia got worse, by Thurs. of that week I had to get the sample. It was negative. Nursing did not follow up getting the urine. When questioned I was told, "we left the urinal in his bath room." With no APRN on site, watching my husband rapidly deteriorating I was livid. A Dr. came to see me on a Sat; she did nothing but talk me into waiting before an antipsychotic was prescribed. On that Sunday, I was called at home that Gerry Had broken the glass of the fire alarm, was bleeding and had to be transferred to Bpt. Hosp. Geriatric Psych where he died on 12/10/14.I am writing this as a service to families who have a loved one with psych. issues. I think they need to advocate for 24/7 coverage of, at least, an aprn. I called the administrator of K3, who responded with, "that's how it is in all nursing homes; to which I responded, "isn't that sad." I have a nurse friend who worked, at one time in another facility. She, in tandem with a psychiatrist, and had a 24/7 on call system. It's only common sense.I am following this up with a letter to the State of Ct., dept. of health.
