With a population of 77,226 people, Redmond, Washington is an average size city. Surprisingly, there are just 2 nursing homes there, which is fewer than we expected in a city of this size. We gave this small group of nursing homes a city grade of B, which is a quality grade. We found this city grade was considerably better than the city grade of C received by the nearby city of Auburn. While that is not an awful grade, Redmond appears to be a slightly better option. In particular, we wanted to make you aware that there is one above average facility in the city. This is probably where we would begin our search here.
Part of the reason Redmond received a favorable overall grade is that many of its nursing homes fared well in the area of inspections with a B+. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. In addition, Redmond earned a B+ for the city's nursing rating. In the last two categories, this place earned middle of the road grades for our short-term care and long-term care areas.
