Illinois law requires hospitals (Hospital Report Card Act) to abide by regulations for reporting nursing care data on a quarterly basis to a state data repository. Our nursing leadership team assures appropriate nurse to patient staffing ratios. Ratios are based upon the nursing needs of the patient and the correct assignment of nursing staff based upon the skill of the staff and the acuity level of patient. In compliance with the Hospital Report Card Act of 2004 (210ILCS86), the Chief Nursing Officer or designee shall provide information related to questions or concerns about our staffing levels, patient care assignments, and/or staff competency. Please contact 618-283-5522 to schedule an appointment.
