With 26,856 people, Sequim, Washington is a small city. There are just 2 nursing homes there, which doesn't provide you with too many options. We gave the nursing homes in this city city grade of C, which is not quite as strong of a score as we like. This grade is below average by national standards. One of the highlights of this place's report card is its nursing homes' strong short-term care grades, which you can find in the next paragraph.
It should also be noted that this city's nursing rating was better than its overall grade. In fact, we awarded Sequim a B+ in this category, which is one of our higher grades. Cities with these kinds of short-term care grades usually have plenty of nursing homes with physical therapy, highly skilled nursing and other services associated with rehabilitation. Sequim's next best category is nursing, where it earned a grade of B- in this category. In the last two categories, we gave the city grades of C and F for our inspections and long-term care areas respectively. As you can see, this city's long-term care score really pulled down its overall score.
