Historical

We awarded this facility an impressive grade of A for our short-term care rating. This score is far more impressive than its overall grade. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to judge a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to have good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. This facility performed much better in the final metric we considered in this category, which was the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. It performed as well as just about any nursing home in Illinois in this metric with 68.3 percent of its patients returning home. For most facilities, less than half of their short-stay patients ever return home.

Historical

Our inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this area tend to have few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Historical

The final category we rated was long-term care. We awarded this facility a grade of D for long-term care, making this the nursing home's weakest category. Facilities that don't fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home provided data regarding vaccinations. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best score in this category.
