Voices for Quality Care 2014 Annual State of Maryland & Washington, D.C. Nursing Homes Report
MD Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys Weigh In:
Voices for Quality Care, an important advocacy group for seniors in the District of Columbia and Maryland, has published their annual survey for nursing homes. The news is not good. Maryland nursing homes scored a “D” on the National Report care assessing staffing and quality of care. Enforcement of regulatory standards remains a problem in both jurisdictions. The Bradford Oaks nursing home in Maryland and ManorCare Health Services in Ruxton both received a D grade for repeated deficiencies in pest control. In DC, Capital Hill Nursing Center and Carolyn Boone Lewis Health Care Center received deficient scores for similar problems in pest control. Consumers need to educate themselves about problems with local nursing homes, explains Maryland Nursing Home Abuse Attorney Jeffrey J. Downey. The Voices report is based largely on Federal data that is available to the public and represents a great summary of some of the problem facilities in these states.
