With two nursing homes in the city, you only have a couple of choices in Brookfield, Missouri. We gave this relatively small group of nursing homes a city grade of B, which is a very solid grade. This is as good or better than the city grade of most of the cities in the United States. This city's nursing homes were better in some categories than others, but it did not have any bad scores in any of our major areas discussed below. More information about its category grades can be found in the next paragraph.
As mentioned above, this city's nursing homes received a great overall grade, but we especially wanted to emphasize that some of its nursing homes received virtually flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded Brookfield an elite grade of A- in this category. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category generally have few severe deficiencies. Brookfield also excelled in the area of nursing with a grade of B. Finally, this place were awarded a B for its short-term care rating and a grade of C for long-term care.
