This place provided 4.2 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which is among the higher totals in the country. A significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more skilled levels of nurses. We are really impressed by both of these figures. On top of providing high levels of care, this place also excelled in several of the quality-based metrics we assessed. With under 5 percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home Illinois in this category. This is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls. Many pressure ulcers could be prevented by offering better nursing care and a policy of moving residents more often.
