Brookline, Massachusetts is a small city with 49,990 people. The city has only one nursing home, which is fewer than we were hoping for. We were relieved to discover that its only nursing home received an excellent overall grade of A. By way of comparison, we gave the nursing homes in the nearby city of Everett a city grade of B+, which is also an impressive grade. Nevertheless, we found this nursing home in Brookline to be even better than most of the facilities in Everett. Headlining this nursing home's exemplary profile is its nursing grade, which is addressed in the next section.
To go along with its great overall grade, we awarded this city's nursing home a grade of A for our nursing rating. The nursing category weighs a handful of datapoints, most of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This facility also received nearly perfect health inspections the past few years, which caused us to award it an impressive grade of A in this category. Rounding out its phenomenal profile, Brookline received an A- for its short-term care rating and a B+ in the area of long-term care.
