Federal law mandates that all nursing homes, including those in Illinois, provide sufficient staff personnel numbers to adequately and safely care for nursing home residents. However, there is no current federal standard for the best nursing home staffing levels. Illinois nursing homes must have at least one registered nurse for at least 8 straight hours a day, 7 days a week and either a registered nurse or a licensed practical nurse/licensed vocational nurse must be on duty 24 hours per day. Some states, including Illinois, may have additional staffing requirements. Certified nursing assistants (CNAs) must provide care to nursing home residents 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.
In the category of physical therapy service hours, that depends on what the facility’s residents require or how the Illinois nursing home is set up to specialize in certain medical areas that fits with its residents’ special needs.

For that reason, it is critical that family and loved ones carefully review and inspect a potential nursing home before committing.
The staffing numbers that are listed on the Medicare.gov website for Illinois nursing homes are based on information reported by the nursing home. They represent staffing levels for a 2-week period prior to the time of a state inspection.
