Bedford Court Healthcare Center

Bedfort Court is a Silver Spring nursing home managed by Sunrise Senior Living, which manages over 300 senior living communities in the United States Bedford Court is a full-service continuing care retirement community that provides independent living than can graduate to assisted living and health and rehabilitation services.

Bedford Court appears to be a very good facility. This Montgomery County nursing home received a Medicare rating of five stars, placing it in the top 20% of nursing homes in Maryland. It is only about half the size of the average Maryland nursing home, with a sixty-bed capacity. At last check, it is only 73% occupied (which could be because the price is pretty steep at up to $301 a day).

According to the Medicare ratings, the facility has fewer health deficiencies than the state average and the U.S. average. The quality measures rating, which looks at the percentages of residents who got the care that was recommended for them, was also much higher than both the Maryland average and the national average. They could stand to improve their licensed staff hours per day because they are below the Maryland average. But, on balance, this is probably a decent nursing home.

We have been unable to locate any lawsuits filed against Bedford Court Healthcare Center, but there are a few verdicts seven figure verdicts against Sunrise Senior Living around the country. Verdicts of this size are rare because nursing homes, probably more than any other type of defendant, will settle nursing home lawsuits before they see the courthouse steps.
