Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

One of the reasons this turned out to be a great facility is that it received a very impressive short-term care score. In fact, this proved to be its best category. In that area, we gave this nursing home an A. In forming our short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to create a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. One of this nursing home's strength is that it offers more than seven hours of care per week from registered nurses to each resident. This is really the gold standard in this area, as it's about 50% higher than the average facility's level of registered nurse staffing. The final measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. It fared as well as just about any nursing home in Illinois in this area with 60.1 percent of its patients returning home. At most facilities, less than half of their short-stay residents ever return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we gave this facility an A. The nursing rating includes many datapoints. The most important factor is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This place provides an impressive 3.8 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Out of this total, more than one fourth of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is among the most highly trained levels of nurses. We add more weight to hours provided by skilled nurses in determining our nursing grades. Finally, we also looked at some quality-based measures in this category. This facility fared well in some of the quality measures we looked at. By way of illustration, in terms of the number of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, this facility performed better than the national average. This is generally an indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided with better nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Another area of strength for this facility is in inspections. In fact, inspections turned out to be one of its best categories. In that category, we gave this facility a B. Inspection ratings are based on several datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this area typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final area we rated was long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a grade of B. This actually ended up being this facility's weakest category. A facility is doing something right when their lowest score still is superior to most facilities. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a deadly condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. This place was also able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 1.42 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.
