Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although we did not have many favorable things to say about this facility's overall grade, it did receive a respectable nursing grade of B-. Our nursing score includes several components, however, the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, although this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this area.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The second best category we gave this nursing home in any category came in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. Our short-term care grade is often used to judge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To have high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The final datapoint 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 discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

This facility earned mediocre inspections in recent years. We gave them a C in this category. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. This place had 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were in categories G through L. This indicates that inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to present an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final area we looked at is long-term care, which was a weak spot for this nursing home. We gave this facility a D for our long-term care category. Facilities that do not score well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in a few of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 80.811806 percent of its residents. This is several points lower than average. To our surprise, this facility actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.

In The Laurels of Galesburg, 13.11% of Patients use Anti-Psychotic Medication
