In addition to 24 hour per day Registered Nursing staff, we have a full complement of Licensed Practical Nurses and Certified Nursing Assistants. They deliver the highest quality nursing care to each of our residents, encouraging them to reach their optimal state of health and wellbeing.
We offer skilled rehabilitation nursing services. This assists short-term clients in healing and returning to their previous living settings as quickly as possible.
Our services also support those who require the assistance of a skilled facility on a long-term basis and those nearing the end of life. This includes, but is not limited to, post-surgical care, IV infusion therapy, Respiratory Services, Wound Care (directed by a Wound Certified Nurse), Peritoneal Dialysis, Pain management, Restorative nursing, Dementia care and Hospice Care.
Brookside is dedicated to the model of Person Directed Care. We work closely with residents, families and the rest of the interdisciplinary team to formulate a plan of care designed around the resident’s goals.
We promote continuing education for all of our nursing staff by offering online education and live in-house programs. We encourage them to remain current in the standards of nursing practice as well as work to improve their skills.
Brookside is proud to contribute to the future of nursing. We serve as a clinical practice site for Gateway Technical College, Herzing University, Marquette University and Carthage College. We are honored to help develop the Nurses and Nurses Aides who will serve our community for years to come.
