Congratulations are definitely in order here: Garrett Regional Medical Center’s Subacute Unit has won its sixth Best Nursing Home award from US News & World Report, receiving a five out of five-performance rating for short-term rehabilitation care. Winning this award means of the 226 nursing home facilities in the state of Maryland, Garrett Regional Medical Center is one of only 67 to achieve a top performance rating. This year the Short-Term Rehabilitation Ratings incorporated several measures of quality including consistency of registered nurse staffing, use of antipsychotic drugs and success in preventing falls. Way to go GRMC!

This is an interesting tidbit from State Attorney General Brian Frosh: Although around 160 million “stimulus” payments have been made to eligible U.S. residents, a recent report estimates that 12 million people, including 147,000 Marylanders, are missing out on receiving a payment. The payments yet to be distributed add up to around $12 billion, $157 million of which is owed to Maryland residents.

According to an online post by the Baltimore Sun, The rise in coronavirus cases in Maryland slowed a bit on Monday, when the state reported 554 new cases.

The Garrett County Health Department, in cooperation with state and local partners, tested 527 participants at a community COVID-19 testing event in Oakland on Friday. Of the 527 persons who participated in testing, 443, or 84% were from Garrett County. Marylanders from outside of Garrett County and West Virginia residents each made up a total of 25 participants. A few of those tested were from Virginia and Pennsylvania, and the rest were from across the U.S. All tests are currently pending.
