    Very EXCELLENCE PLACE

  • ★★★★★ 5 years ago

    I started to have difficulty breathing and noticed that I was having trouble remembering if I had taken my medications. Around the middle of December I decided to take myself to Weiss Hospital where I was admitted. I've lived in my apartment on the north side of Chicago for over 20 years and was looking forward to going back there after I got out of the hospital. When the doctors and social workers told me that they wanted to send to a long term care facility I was immediately hesitant because I knew that meant I would not be returning home as soon as I thought. After thinking about what was best for me, I decided to go to a long term care facility. I knew that I wanted to be close to my apartment on the north side of Chicago and also wanted to continue seeing my doctor from Weiss Hospital. On January 3, 2012 I came to the Mid America Care Center. I was immediately impressed with the cleanliness of the facility and with how friendly the staff treated me. I found the assistance the nurses provided me to be very helpful and allowed me to stay on course with my medications. I was able to participate in physical and occupational therapy that allowed me to get stronger and taught me several exercises that I still use today. After staying at the Mid America Care Center for about 4 months, I was ready to return to my apartment. The Social Service team at Mid America Care Center helped me to arrange for home health nurses and aides to come see me in my apartment and to help me stay on course with my doctor's appointments and medications. I cannot thank the staff at the Mid America Care Center enough for all that they have done. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone needing their services.

    My name is Patricia A. and in May of 2012 I became very ill. I could not move so one night I decided to call the ambulance and go to Weiss Hospital. Upon their examination they found out that I had a severe infection in my spine. So from there I had surgery and after that I had to have rehab. After about 3 or 4 weeks of rehab in Weiss, I transferred to Mid America Care Center. Upon arriving at Mid America Care Center I received the best of care. I was frightened coming here because I didn't know anyone. The staff here welcomed me with open arms and tender care. Now it is September and I am ready to go home because of the extensive therapy I received at Mid America Care Center. So I say to anyone who needs to have the kind of care I had to have, please come to Mid America Care Center. They have excellent doctors, nurses, and rehab staff. Take it from me, you won't find a better place.

    Walter D. 9/2011 When I was interviewed about coming to Mid America from my bed at Thorek Hospital I was very apprehensive about even a short-term stay in a nursing home. My previous experience with a nursing home was my mom's boyfriend being confined to a really unclean and understaffed one on the south side of Chicago. It isn't often in life that you anticipate a bad experience and find not just a good one but also a spectacular one. First of all the staff is to be commended for not just their extreme professionalism but for the kind, beautiful and caring attitude for everyone under their care. It is a revelation! Then the facility itself is so immaculately clean. I have frankly never seen any business even surmount hospitals I've visited to be so constantly and consistently maintained. I would recommend this place to anyone without reservation. Card From Daughter of David J. 9/2011 Dear 2nd floor MidAmerica Staff, Thanks for helping me make sure my father was okay during his time of need. Sincere thanks, and most appreciative for your concerns. Love ya, Linda J. Letter From Richard E. 8/2011 My name is Richard E. and I am a former resident of the Mid America Care Center. I am writing to explain my situation and the experiences I encountered while residing at the Mid America Care Center. Prior to being admitted to the Mid America Care Center I suffered severe medical complications while living in my apartment near Midway Airport. While in the hospital, my medical condition stabilized but I still had a long road to recovery ahead of me. I had a feeding tube inserted into my stomach because I was not able to successfully swallow food or water. I came to the Mid America Care Center on February 22, 201 l. When I was admitted, I still had my feeding tube but I started working with the Speech Therapist. Not long after working with the Speech Therapist, I began to have more success swallowing food and water without coughing. The facility staff also assisted me with my meal times and before long l was feeding myself without any difficulty. On June 27, 201 l I had my feeding tube removed. Working with the therapy team helped me regain the independence I experienced prior to becoming sick. I worked very hard with the therapy team who helped rebuild my strength and gave me constant encouragement not to give up on the plan of being able to walk again without any assistive devices. After many days and hours of working with the therapy team, I'm now able to dress myself, shower independently, and no longer use a wheelchair or walker to get around. The Mid America staff on the 2"" floor provided excellent care from the time I was admitted until I left. From helping to manage my medications or just giving their ear to listen to me, the staff was always patient and understanding to my needs. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff at the Mid America Care Center for all their attention, hard work and caring attitude. Without their help, I would not have been able to recover from these setbacks. I would not be able to retum to my apartment and live on my own again had it not been for the assistance and care I received at the Mid America Care Center.

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
No actual harm with potential for minimal harm A B C
