Registered Staff Hours
While we were not complementary of this nursing home's overall performance, it did receive an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that area with a B+. Our inspection grades are tied to items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities with severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was given an impressive long-term care score. As a matter of fact, we gave them a grade of B in this category, which happens to be one of our better. For patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 82.666664 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is slightly less than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, we were pleased to find nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Citadel Care Center-Kankakee?

Our nursing rating looks at the facility's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of training of the nurses and the amount of time spent with residents. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, this place's nurse staffing levels were significantly below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the fourth area, this nursing home didn't fare well in this area either. With a rock bottom grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as terrible as it gets. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Considering its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to learn that this place is well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we looked at. The final measure we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics sunk this nursing home's short-term care score.
