Short-term Care Quality
On top of receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home also received an A+ short-term care grade. Our short-term care scores are believed to be most meaningful for folks in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. This means not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. This nursing home elevated its grade in this category by offering more care from registered nurses to its residents than the average facility. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this nursing home. This place performed as well as just about any facility in the nation in this area with 71.4 percent of its residents returning home.
Adding to an already impressive profile, this facility also received virtually flawless health inspections in recent years. As a result, we awarded it an A+ inspection grade. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
This first-rate facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. In determining our nursing grades, we assess both nursing hours and the skill levels of those nurses. This particular nursing home provided 6.7 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This was one of the higher totals we found. Furthermore, we found that a significant portion of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. These are both really impressive figures. On top of providing high levels of nursing care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed as well as any nursing home in Illinois in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
In the last category, this facility also received an A+ for its long-term care grade. This topped off a stellar profile of straight A+'s. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility submitted information about vaccinations. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
