On top of receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received an A+ inspection grade. This grade is based on its recent inspection reports. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can pay to a facility. Arguably the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

In this process, we assess the facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Remarkably, this nursing home provides about one and a half times as many hours of services from physical therapists and registered nurses than most facilities we looked at. The final metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in Illinois in this area with 63.5 percent of its residents returning home.
