BALTIMORE — The Maryland Department of Health (MDH) on July 26 announced the top 10 and bottom 10 nursing home facilities in the state ranked by percentage of staff with at least one dose of a vaccine against COVID-19 and highly contagious variants.
MDH also announced 26 nursing home facilities in the state that did not submit staff COVID-19 vaccination data as required by the state. On May 4, 2021, the Maryland Department of Aging launched the Skilled Nursing Facilities Vaccination Dashboard, which weekly publishes data on residents and staff vaccinated against COVID-19 at each of the skilled nursing homes and congregate care facilities in the state.
“We have made tremendous progress vaccinating Marylanders who reside and work at nursing homes and congregate care facilities, but our work is not done,” said MDH Secretary Dennis R. Schrader. “We are grateful for everyone who is vaccinated and it is imperative that facilities encourage staff who are still unvaccinated to get vaccinated as soon as possible to ensure that they and our elderly loved ones they care for stay safe.”
“Maryland’s older adults utilize the services of nursing homes not only for long-term care, but often for rehabilitation care.” said Maryland Department of Aging Secretary Rona E. Kramer. “If the public doesn’t have confidence that nursing home or long-term care staff are vaccinated, their choices for care support will be limited. Our older adults deserve to be comfortable accessing all of their care options, including the full array of services that Maryland’s nursing homes provide.”
