Autumn Lake Healthcare at Chestertown

Formerly known as Chestertown Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, Autumn Lake Healthcare at Chestertown is a short-term rehabilitation and skilled nursing facility. The care options include post-acute rehabilitation, wound care management, and respite care.

This facility is an independently owned part of Autumn Lake Health Care. Autumn Lake Healthcare has fourteen facilities throughout New Jersey, Maryland, and Connecticut. The only other Autumn Lake facility in Maryland is Alice Manor in Baltimore County.

The facility is smaller than the Maryland average, and is 86% full. This means that at last check, it housed 76 residents.

It may be best that this nursing home does not have too many patients. By and large, the ratings and the inspection reports show the kind of facility you expect to generate a nursing home lawsuit. If that seems like a harsh analysis from a nursing home attorney, check out the ratings below. Medicare certainly does not have any ax to grind. It is also worth pointing out that the Autumn Lake facility in Baltimore County has similarly terrible Medicare ratings and inspections.

The licensed nursing staff hours per resident per day falls about 40 minutes short of the average in Maryland. The Medicare ratings also reflect that the quality of care the residents are receiving is only a 1/5, followed by a 3/5 rating on the health inspections.

The facility does, however, have only four health deficiencies, which is six lower than the state average and three lower than the national average.

We have been unable to find any lawsuits filed against an Autumn Lake Healthcare facility, but this does not mean that they might not exist.
