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 example, Illinois nursing homes and long-term care facilities might provide better specialized care for residents suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. 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.

Presence Resurrection Life Center has not received any federal fines in the last 3 years. It is possible that Illinois may have imposed a penalty under state law, but none are listed.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
“We were devastated when our 31 year-old son was killed by a negligent driver. Kreisman Law Offices did everything to help us through this very difficult time, including coming out to the house several times which was a comfort. My wife and I were extremely pleased with Mr. Kreisman’s compassion and care for this very tragic and troubling time.” C.B.
★★★★★
“Bob Kreisman did everything possible in handling the trial of this case. It was devastating that I traumatically lost my leg above the knee in this truck accident. However, it was not an easy case to win. His staff was so prepared for the trial that it was not surprising that the settlement offers continued to rise until we finally accepted the multi-million settlement while the jury was still deciding the case. My wife and I were delighted that we could secure our future with this settlement. We thank Mr. Kreisman and his incredible staff for working so hard for our benefit.” T.P.
★★★★★
“My mother died because doctors dropped the ball. I called Robert Kreisman and he immediately set up an appointment for my entire family. We met at his offices and I was very comfortable that he would do the best for my dad and my brothers. He spent hours with all of us in preparing for depositions and he hired top notch experts, all of which contributed to an incredible settlement before trial. I know that he is dedicated to his cases and particularly to the people he works for and the people who work with him. He continues to be generous in contributing annually to my mother’s memory and to make known to the public the signs and symptoms of brain tumors.” V.S.
★★★★★
“My dad was ignored and mistreated at the nursing home that we placed him in. It didn’t take long for us to realize that we made a big mistake, particularly after my dad developed these terrible bedsores. We transferred him as we were contacting Mr. Kreisman. He was referred to us by a lawyer we have known for a long time and respect his opinion. Mr. Kreisman and his staff worked tirelessly to resolve this case. We were fortunate to have his services and will recommend him to anyone.” T.J.
