There are two nursing homes in Salem, Indiana, so at least you have a few choices. These facilities received on average an overall grade of C. This isn't a terrible score, but it is not quite as high of a grade as we like to see either. By way of comparison, we gave the facilities in the local city of Martinsville a city grade of F, which is a very poor grade. Although neither city received a rave review, we found the nursing homes in Salem to be a better bet. One of the best aspects of this place's profile is its remarkable inspection grade, which is addressed in the next paragraph.
This city's nursing homes received a fairly ordinary overall grade, however, we really would like to point out that some of the nursing homes in the city virtually flawless health inspections the past few years. We gave them an elite grade of A in this category. Inspection grades are based on many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this area typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This city earned its next highest grade in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a B-, which is also a respectable grade. Lastly, this place received a C in our nursing category and a grade of D for long-term care. In spite of otherwise respectable category grades, this place's poor long-term care grade may be concerning for many people.
