Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall score, this facility received an A+ inspection grade. This is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. An A+ in this category is one of the highest complements we can offer a nursing home. Our inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. This place was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to note the fact that this nursing home received a high-end score of A in our short-term care category. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. It does not look like this nursing home provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 7.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. In determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we assess the amount of time nurses are seeing patients as well as the levels of training of the nurses. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility Illinois in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a system of turning residents at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In our last area, this nursing home also received a very strong long-term care rating, with a grade of B+. This wrapped up a very favorable profile. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. One of the statistics we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home submitted data regarding vaccinations. Clearly, this nursing home 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 one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
