We looked at the only nursing home in Salem, Massachusetts. We were relieved to discover that, this place's sole nursing home received a strong grade of B+, so at least you have one quality option. By way of comparison, we awarded the nursing homes in the nearby city of Arlington a city grade of B, which is also an impressive grade. However, we found this nursing home in Salem to be an even better option than most of the facilities in Arlington. The best aspect of this facility's strong profile was its short-term care grade. We discuss short-term care in the next paragraph.
As mentioned above, this city's lone nursing home received a great overall grade, but we awarded them an impressive grade of A- in our short-term care category. With our short-term care rating, we seek to craft a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. This city also excelled in the category of long-term care, where it earned a B+. Rounding out its strong report card, Salem earned a B+ in our nursing category and a B+ in the area of inspections. This place did not have any weak links as far as we could tell.
