There are two nursing homes in Salem, Illinois, so at least you have a few choices. This small group of facilities received on average an overall grade of B-, which is a solid score for the city. By way of comparison, we awarded the nursing homes in the nearby city of Collinsville a city grade of F, which is a far below average grade. Clearly, we found the facilities in Salem to be on a whole other level than the ones in Collinsville. One of the better aspects of this city's profile is its nursing homes' impressive inspection reports, which you can find in the next paragraph.
This city's nursing homes' best category grade was in the area of health inspections. In that category, we gave Salem a B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. Salem also fared well in the category of health nursing with a grade of B. In our final two categories, Salem earned a B- in our long-term care category and a grade of D in short-term care. In spite of an otherwise respectable performance, this place's weak short-term care grade may be an issue for those who need rehabilitation.
