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.
