Local nursing home facility receives five-star rating from


Norm Hathcoat said several of the nursing homes he initially contacted have since notified him of openings, but he said the Middletown location has become his brother’s home.

Overall, 19 of the 32 Miller’s Merry Manor facilities in the state have received five-star ratings from Medicare. There are 59 accommodations at Middletown, Paulie said, stressing those who live at Miller’s are residents not patients.

“We treat everyone as if they are wearing a sign that says, ‘Make me feel important,’” Paulie said.

Nursing home ratings come from: Health inspections Staffing Quality measures A star rating is provided for each of these three sources and then these three ratings are combined to calculate an overall rating. The Five Star Quality Rating System is not a substitute for visiting a nursing home. A rating of 1 to 5 stars based on resident assessment data that show how well the nursing home cares for residents' needs. More stars are better. This system can give you important information, help you compare nursing homes by topics you consider most important, and help you think of questions to ask when you visit the nursing home. Use the Five-Star ratings together with other sources of information when making a decision.
