The people at The Bristol Home were very nice as far as setting up an assisted living situation for my relative, but I don't think it was a good fit just because of its location. They were a bit understaffed, and the staff was a bit confused when I arrived there. But they gave me a tour, and everyone seemed to be adequate. I know that they had a lot of LPNs on the floor and CNAs but not any RNs, so I'm not sure how that works with medication distribution. I saw the rooms, and they were very nice.Provider Response
In Assisted Living in New York State, having nurses is not a requirement. Some facilities do not employ nurses but have aides who are trained as Med Techs. Bristol Home employs nurses around the clock. Another regulation is Assisted Living in NY is that nurses are not allowed to "assess" Therefore, RN's, even if they were on staff, would only be able to function as LPN's.
