Regency Care of Silver Spring | Nursing Home Lawsuits

Regency Care of Silver Spring is a 92-bed for-profit nursing home in Silver Spring. It appears that is a Genesis owned center that at some point changed its name to Regency Care of Silver Spring. We are unsure of the history of this center. We think it was Woodside Center at some point, probably before Genesis bought it.

The cost of Regency Care of Silver Spring is not cheap. It is $7,391 for a private room and $6,782 for a non-private room.

Our nursing home lawyers are wildly unimpressed with the quality of Genesis nursing homes in Maryland. But this nursing home is doing pretty well if you look at the Medicare data.

This inspection report in 2019 leaves a lot to be desired. The report does not show a lot problems that cause a risk of injury to the residents. That is a good thing, right? But if you are making tons of mistakes that Medicare is catching, you are probably more likely to be doing a lot of other things that Medicare does not catch that do cause a risk of harm. Few nursing homes get tons of things wrong and yet still nail patient safety.
