This facility received a short-term care score which is better than its overall grade. We awarded this facility an above average grade of B+ in this category. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To have highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
We also awarded this facility a favorable grade in nursing. This facility earned a grade of B+ in this category, which is one of our better grades.

Does this page answer your questions about Care Age of Brookfield?
This nursing home's inspection score also was quite a bit better than its overall grade. Due to a strong inspection report this year, it received one of our better scores in that category with a B. Inspection scores weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. Unfortunately, it does not appear that we have deficiency counts for this nursing home. We would like to have more data for this facility. Without having all of the information regarding deficiencies, it is a challenge to grade the place in the area of inspections.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed was long-term care, which ended up being this nursing home's worst category. We awarded this facility a grade of D in that category. Of course, this score pulled down the nursing home's overall grade to some degree. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 96.25668 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
