There are two facilities in Peru, Illinois, so at least you have a few choices. We awarded the nursing homes here a strong city grade of B+. Even with just a few nursing homes, this is still a high quality city grade. Peru has the prestigious distinction of being one of the twenty five highest rated cities in the state of Illinois. This datapoint is a reminder that Illinois has a long list of cities with excellent nursing homes. This city's profile was also very consistent as it didn't receive a single poor category grade either. You can learn more about these in the next paragraph.
To pair with its great overall grade, we awarded the nursing homes in Peru an A in our inspections category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. The city also received strong short-term care score where it earned a B+ in this area. In our final two categories, Peru received middle of the road grades for our long-term care and nursing categories.
