Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

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 77.3 percent of its patients returning home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive category scores, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Not many nursing homes performed better in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. The nursing score includes quite a few factors, most of which are based on nursing hours. This nursing home provided 5.6 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is among the highest figures in the country. A significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more skilled levels of nurses. We were very impressed by both of these figures. In addition to offering high levels of care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. For example, 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 statistics as good measures of the caliber of nursing care provided.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last area we looked at was this nursing home's worst category. Nevertheless, even its weakest link would likely be a strength for many nursing homes. We awarded it a strong grade of B in our long-term care category. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. It does not appear that this nursing home provided data regarding vaccinations. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
