    I am a patient at Brookside currently and this place is EXCELLENT! I have been to other facilities in the past and this one by far is the best. The Admissions Office and Concierge has helped me every day with my questions and made sure that I am having the best experience. Thank you Brookside!!

    Unexpectedly my father-in-law needed to be placed in a long term nursing home. After much research we looked into Brookside and so happy we did. The section that my father-in-law was place is NOT the updated portion of the facility, but is nice enough and we really couldn't ask for better care. The admissions department made his admissions very easy and took the initiative to take care of everything. The nurses on staff are very friendly, caring, patient, attentive and knowledgeable. We are so happy we chose this facility and he has settled in very nicely. I would highly recommend looking into Brookside if you are considering a nursing home for a loved one.

    My mother was discharged from this facility one week ago and I would like to say that she had an amazing experience! A short term and unexpected illness left her weak and unable to walk. The Physical and Occupational Therapists were phenomenal. Their patience and care in getting my mother moving and back on her feet is still deeply appreciated. She never felt as if she was being "talked down to" or pushed beyond her limits, she just had real encouragement every step of the way. The nursing staff were wonderful, they were friendly yet professional and have the knowledge that doesn't come from a book or lecture. The social work department is a caring group of people, and just as professional as the rest of the staff. Upon discharge my mother was referred by her social worker to the home care agency and continued receiving nursing, physical and occupational therapy services at home. Agency even sent her a home health aide. I do not hesitate to recommend this rehabilitation establishment.

    My maternal grandma was there for physical therapy, and the service was excellent. The therapists were always attentive to her needs, and made sure that she never had any lonely moments. The place has high-tech amenities too.

Compare The Number of Problems

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
