Springfield, Ohio offers only three nursing homes to choose from, which is a limited selection. Sadly, we gave this city a city grade of D, which is a sign that these nursing homes generally did not fare well in our ratings. By way of comparison, we awarded the nursing homes in the nearby city of Middletown a city grade of F, which is a well below average score. Although neither city received a rave review, we found the facilities in Springfield to be a better option. Despite all this, one of the few highlights of this place's report card is its impressive inspection reports. You can continue reading to learn more about inspections and other category scores
While its overall score was as bad as it gets, we actually awarded Springfield a grade of B+ for our inspections rating. This category clearly was not the reason for this place's alarming overall grade. Inspection grades are tied to many datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. Surprisingly, Springfield also performed decently in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of B- in this area. In the last two categories, the city received rock bottom grades for our short-term care and nursing areas respectively.
