More Than Half of Champaign County Nursing Homes Provide Substandard Care

Champaign County, a community located in downstate Illinois, is probably best known as the home of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. According to the most recent U.S. Census Bureau figures, the county has an estimated population of about 208,000 people, of whom more than 24,000 are senior citizens 65 years and older. The aging population has placed demands on facilities responsible for providing residential nursing care to the elderly in and around Champaign, Urbana, Colfax, Bement, Savoy, Danville, Sullivan, and Monticello.

The federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regularly inspects and publishes data on every nursing facility in the U.S. certified by CMS, including twenty-five nursing homes within a 50-mile radius of Champaign. Based on its investigations, the agency rated fourteen (56%) of those facilities “below average” or “ much below average” in the overall quality of care provided to residents.

Rating Champaign County Nursing Homes

State inspectors conduct annual inspections of CMS-certified nursing homes across the United States for compliance with federal regulations governing safety, health, nutrition, and patients’ rights. Facilities that are found deficient receive a citation and are required to correct the noncompliance. CMS publishes its findings on its Nursing Home Compare webpage.

Below we have broken down the rankings for all the facilities within the county and highlighted the primary issues with some of the worst nursing homes.

★★★★★
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
