    Recently I had the privilege of spending 9 days at Heartland Healthcare facility located . I was involved in an auto accident that resulted in my having 11 fractured ribs, a fractured pelvis, a lacerated spleen and a punctured lung. After the accident I was treated at one of the premier trauma centers in Chicago land. I was in the hospital for 11 days. While the medical care was exceptional, the food left a lot to be desired. So much so, that my daughter left the hospital daily to provide all my meals from local restaurants. Upon my release I was taken to Heartland Healthcare in Paxton IL. Yep, that is quite a ride, but one must go where one believes the best care is available. And my assumptions were accurate. I found the facility to be very clean, the grounds well manicured, and the patient outside spaces to be very inviting. The nursing staff was professional, attentive, and compassionate. The CNA staff was compassionate as well, and always available to respond to my needs, which included providing me with a shower. I was unable to walk and could stand only briefly, so taking a shower required the assistance of a CNA to actually wash/dry me. When going to one of these facilities with a serious injury, one must leave your inhibitions at the front door and allow the staff to do their job, including providing a shower. There was a problem managing my pain, but Jody the Nurse Practitioner, made herself available to discuss revising the pain meds as necessary in an attempt to control my pain. And eventually she did just that. My stay at Heartland lasted 9 days. During that time, one has an opportunity to view the staff, their performance and possible learn something about their personality. I watched the CNA staff feed Dementia patients daily and actually have a one sided conversation with them about what the patients would do that day. The compassion they exhibited for their patients was truly touching. You cannot instill that in a person, that is part of their personality. And speaking of food, I have to say that the food I sampled here was by far, better than the food I was served at the premier trauma center I was at previously. The variety of choices on the menu would satisfy any finicky eater, guilty, and the thought that went into the meal recipes was very impressive. Simply put, great food. Heartland also has a Physical Therapy Dept that was also part of my rehab while there. The therapists always asked what my limitations were prior to starting a session and worked up to that point but also tried to progress me past that point, which is the point of PT/OT. Once again the staff which included, Terri, Dave, Annazette, and Jill, were focused on my progression but not so much that I had pain. I would be remiss were I not to mention the Administrator, Donna. Donna is a very busy woman, always in a hurry to do something or get somewhere, however she found time to visit me numerous times to insure I was comfortable and well cared for. Heartland is lucky to have all these dedicated people at their facility. I have to say that my stay there was extremely positive and I would recommend Heartland to anyone who requires the services they provide and do so with such professionalism.

    I am so disappointed in this nursing home. My Father and my Mother in law are both in there right now. My Father broke his hip and fractured some bones in his back. Their physical therapist are good but the nursing home lacks in every other aspect. My Mother in law is just left to lay in bed and sleep all the time. They do nothing to encourage her to do anything else, My Father has Alzheimer and is not adjusting well.He cannot understand why he cannot go home. He says he wants to die and they stick him in an ambulance and send him to the psych ward in the hospital. This just disrupts him more. I have no use for the way this nursing home is run. They are strictly run for profit only. They have caused so much emotional turmoil for my poor Mother. We are moving him as soon as we can. I just found out one of the nurses was yelling a mt\y Father last night. Several of the other patients let my Mother know about it.,

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
