There are four nursing homes in Salem, Oregon, 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. This is right about in the middle of the pack by national standards, which is nothing to be ashamed of. One of the highlights of this place's profile is its nursing homes' impressive short-term care scores, which is addressed in the next paragraph.
This city's overall grade was propped up by its impressive scores in short-term care. We awarded the city one of our higher scores in that category, with a grade of B+. With a short-term care grade this high we would expect the majority of the facilities here to offer high levels of physical and occupational therapy staffing. The city earned a B for the city's nursing rating. Lastly, Salem received a grade of B- for its inspections grade and a grade of D for long-term care. Clearly, this city's long-term care rating really dragged down its overall grade.
