Registered Staff Hours
Even though we didn't rate this nursing home well overall, we want to acknowledge it received a decent grade of B- in nursing. There are a variety of datapoints within this category. Most of these factors relate to the quantity of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a place has quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a decent grade in the area of short-term care, where it received a C. Our short-term care ratings are crucial for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Heartland of Woodridge?
This facility received mediocre government inspections in recent years. We awarded them a C in this area. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 6 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in categories G through L. This means inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent danger to resident safety or health. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's weakest area is long-term care, which is the last area we scored. For this area, we awarded this facility a D. Facilities that don't fare well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to just 72.16981 percent of its patients, which is several points lower than we expected. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.06 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
