Spencer, West Virginia has only two nursing homes to choose from, so you don't have too many options to choose from. This small group of nursing homes in this city received a decent city grade of B-. This is a middle of the pack grade compared to other cities in the country. Please continue reading to find more information about how this city's nursing homes fared in our category grades.
While its overall grade was fairly ordinary, this city performed extremely well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. Spencer also performed spectacularly well in the area of long-term care, where it earned an A- for that category. Lastly, this place received grades of C and D for our short-term care and nursing categories respectively. In spite of an otherwise respectable profile, a nursing rating this poor may be a bad sign for nursing staffing levels.
