Yakima is a city with a population of 126,248 people. There are 3 nursing homes there for you to choose from.
While its overall grade was as bad as it gets, we awarded the nursing homes in Yakima a B for our short-term care rating. This category obviously isn't the reason for its alarming overall grade. Our short-term care ratings are presumably more meaningful for individuals requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Surprisingly, we also awarded this city a B for our inspections rating. Finally, we gave Yakima grades of C and F for our nursing and long-term care categories respectively. Even with otherwise respectable category grades, this city's poor long-term care score could be an issue for many people.
