There are two nursing homes in Spencer, Indiana, so at least you have a few options to choose from. The small group of nursing homes here received a city grade of C, which is not a great grade at the city level. We also looked at the facilities in the nearby city of Martinsville, which received a city grade of D. While we aren't raving about either city, we found the facilities in Spencer to be a bit better. Unfortunately, it does not look like any of the facilities here really stood out. Nevertheless, we were still able to find a few decent nursing homes here.
This city's nursing homes received a fairly ordinary overall grade, however, we really wanted to point out that some of the nursing homes in the city almost perfect health inspections in recent years. We gave it an elite grade of A in this category. Our inspection scores are tied to many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. In addition, the city earned a B for the city's short-term care rating. In the other categories we looked at, the city received grades of C and D for our nursing and long-term care areas respectively. In spite of an otherwise respectable performance, this place's weak long-term care score may be a concern for many people.
