Historical

One of the reasons this place received a great overall grade is that it received an A+ in short-term care. This is simply as good as it gets in this area. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to judge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. This nursing home excelled in two key staffing areas we assessed. It offered about 50% more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than a typical facility. This is generally an encouraging sign. The final item we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it performed as well as just about any facility in Illinois in this area with 78.3 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

Adding to an already impressive profile, this facility also received virtually flawless health inspections in recent years. As a result, we awarded it an A+ inspection grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

This facility also was awarded a top-shelf long-term care score. Indeed, this ended up being this facility's third best category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility a score of A. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are kept in good health. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility provided information about vaccinations. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Historical

In the last category we assessed, this facility was given a very strong grade of A- in our nursing category. With this grade, the nursing home finished off a straight A report card. Our nursing rating focuses on the facility's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of training of those nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home provides an incredible 4.8 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Very few nursing homes provide this quantity of nursing care to their patients. Out of that total, many of the hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. On top of providing high levels of care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality measures we assessed. By way of illustration, it performed as well as any nursing home in the state in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these data points as reliable measures of the quality of nursing care being provided.
