To go along with its favorable overall grade, we gave this place an A- for our inspections rating. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple relatively minor dings are not something to panic about.
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 awarded this nursing home a grade of B+. The nursing category assesses quite a few subcategories, many of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place Illinois in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a policy of moving a resident more frequently.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to another strength for this nursing home, we gave them one of our better grades in our short-term care category as well, with a B+. In forming our short-term care grades, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to devise a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. We weren't able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we graded is long-term care, is this facility's least impressive category. We gave this facility a grade of D in that area. This really is one of just a few dings on a very solid report card. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means the nursing home did not perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. It doesn't look like this nursing home provided data regarding vaccinations. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
