Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to earning a strong overall score, this facility performed well in our short-term care category. We awarded it an A for that category. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be most meaningful for folks requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive category grades, we awarded this facility an A for inspections. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B+. Nursing scores are largely tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures 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 frequently be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of moving a patient at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next area we analyzed was nursing, was this facility's weakest category. We awarded this facility a grade of D in that category. This was one of the few weak links in an otherwise strong profile. For patients seeking a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 98.32402 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
