- Dec 28, '04 by traumaRUsContact the Medicaid office in the city in Illinois where you live. Obtain a list of exceptional level of care long term care facilities. There are quite a few vent LTCs in Illinois - many near Chicago, one near Quincy, I believe. However, the list changes and you need updated info. Good luck. Another way would be to contact a hospital case manager at a local hospital.

Also Check out www.idph.state.il.us
You can check out every LTC facility on that website... I know b/c I look at it frequently...They have links to Il Dept public health surveys, news releases on which facilities have been disciplined & why....
It even has a link that lets you know the population of the facility, address, # of employees... I am not sure how often that section is updated, but there are portions of it that are updated daily.
I have worked quite a few of the LTC agencies in the chicago burbs.... if you have any questions, feel free to private message me & I will let you know, what I know about the facilities that I have been to...Last edit by TracyB,RN on Dec 29, '04 : Reason: left out a thought
