It opened this northeast Baltimore facility in 2009.

This center has largely done pretty well. It has struggled a bit on quality measure Medicare considers and it is far from perfect as this inspection indicates. But if you look at the Medicare stats as a whole, it has done quite well.

The address for Brinton Woods Post Acute Care Center is 5009 Frankford Ave, Baltimore, MD 21206. The phone number is (410) 325-4000.

Lawsuit Against Brinton Woods Post Acute Care Center

In 2015, Brinton Woods Post Acute Care Center was sued by the family claiming that poor care caused their father's death.

The man came to Brinton Woods with some significant health problems including diabetes and renal failure. The family's survival action and wrongful death lawsuit alleged that the nursing home did not re-position him to prevent his death and did not otherwise do the things that a nursing home should do to properly care for the patient.

When sued, Brinton Woods tries to use a unconscionable contract to force residents to arbitrate nursing home cases that otherwise would have their day in court.  "Unconscionable" is not Maryland nursing home lawyer talk -- this is how the Maryland Court of Special Appeals in 2019 described this clause when they threw it out and said it was unenforceable.
