Competitors

In Cumberland, Allegany Health competes with these nursing homes:

  • Golden LivingCenter - Cumberland: This is the closest nursing home to Allegany Health. It is one of the worst nursing homes in Maryland in almost every category, according to Medicare ratings and inspections. GoldenLiving is about an 8-minute drive (less than 3 miles) from Allegany Health.
  • The Lions Center for Rehab and Ext Care: This is an average rated nursing home which is a 10-minute drive (5 miles) from Allegany Health
  • Devlin Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center: This is another average rated nursing home that is about an 11-minute drive (5 miles) away from Allegany Health
Medicare Ratings

This is the highest rated facility in Cumberland, receiving average to above-average ratings in all categories except staffing. The number of licensed nurse staff hours per resident per day, physical therapy staff hours per resident per day, and CAN hours per resident per day are well below the Maryland and national average. Although the staffing is low, the overall Medicare rating the facility has is a 4/5. There is no question that staffing is more of a challenge in rural areas like Cumberland. But there is also no question that lack of staffing can lead to nursing home malpractice lawsuits because there are not enough people to do what needs to be done to maximize safety.

But you also cannot easily ignore troubling health inspections. The senior care facility was cited in 2016 for things like not doing a proper accounting of controlled substances and failing to get medical care for patients that clearly need more attention. So there is a lot this facility can do to improve and get better and hopefully we see that on their next health inspection.

You can call the center at 301-777-5941.
