Update on Maryland’s Top 10 and Last Qualified Nursing Facilities Ranked by Staff Immunization Rate

Maryland Department of Health also announces update on facilities that failed to submit adequate data required

Baltimore, Maryland – The Maryland Department of Health (MDH) today announced an update on the top 10 and last qualified nursing facilities in the state, ranked by percentage of staff with at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. MDH also announced an update on skilled nursing facilities that failed to submit adequate COVID-19 vaccination data as required by the state.

Through vaccination protocols in force since September 1, 2021, all staff in healthcare facilities must have their first or only one dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Healthcare establishments that do not follow vaccination protocols or do not correctly report their vaccination data are subject to fines, civil penalties and enforcement measures.

To date, 99 nursing homes in the state have immunized 91% or more of their staff. A complete list of state nursing facilities and their immunization data is available from the Maryland Department of Aging’s Qualified Nursing Facility Immunization Dashboard, which is updated weekly.

“More than 88 percent of nursing home staff in Maryland have received at least one dose of a life-saving COVID-19 vaccine,” MDH Secretary Dennis R. Schrader said. “By getting vaccinated, they have taken the most important step possible during this pandemic to protect themselves and our elderly loved ones whom they care for on a daily basis.”

“The vast majority of health care facilities in the state are in full compliance with COVID-19 vaccination protocols in place to ensure the safety of residents and staff,” said Rona E. Kramer, secretary of the Maryland Department of Aging. “We are indebted to them and will continue to work with facilities that are not compliant to ensure that their residents and staff are also safe.”
