Short-term Care Quality
We also found that this facility excelled in our short-term care rating. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Short-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. This nursing home excelled in two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it offered about 50% more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than the typical facility. The last measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home in Illinois in this area with 66.9 percent of its residents returning home. For most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.
The next category we looked at was inspections, where this facility also received an A+ grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Our inspection grades are based on several items located in the a nursing home's inspection reports. Places that score well in this category tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. We were not able to track down information on deficiency's for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning our next category, this nursing home received a top-shelf long-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it a score of A in that area. For patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility submitted information about vaccinations. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
In the last category we analyzed, this nursing home received a very favorable grade of A in our nursing category. With this grade, the nursing home topped off a straight A profile. Our nursing score is based on many subcategories, but the paramount one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This place provided 5.8 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is among the more impressive figures in the country. A significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the most highly skilled levels of nurses. We are very impressed by both of these figures. On top of providing impressive levels of care, this place also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. For example, it performed as well as any facility in the state in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these metrics as good measures of the caliber of nursing care being provided.
