U.S. News and World Report recently unveiled the Best Nursing Homes Honor Roll, a list of nursing homes throughout the country that received five-star ratings in health inspections, staffing, and quality measures resident care. The list is part of the magazine’s larger efforts to rate nursing homes across the United States. Three Illinois nursing homes made the Honor Roll, including one in Belleville, a facility in Barrington and a nursing home in Chicago. The list is a useful tool for families who are faced with choosing a nursing home for a loved one. It is important to research nursing homes to make a well-educated decision about a loved one’s’ care. This research can reveal whether a home has been cited for nursing home abuse and will also provide insight into things like staffing levels and resident activities.
