    My stay here at Nursecare of Buckhead was a wonderful one. I was very pleased with the services I have received here from nursing to rehab. The food was okay but not my favorite. Overall I would recommend this facility !!

    My stay has been more then excellent. When I first got to the facility I couldn't get out of bed, I was literally a basket case. The nurses were the best, my nurses were my family the way they treated me. The CNA's you can't make it without them. Their your hands, feet, everything. After they do for you, you began to love them. Rehab is a life savior, these people save your life. They motivate you and also have a wealth of knowledge with what they do. I had months and months of rehab, walking and using my hands after I was told I could never walk again. The administrator and the admin team is very helpful. Between nursing and rehab its just so profound. I know this place and its not just games and my family knows that. I would recommend this place to family, friends and their friends. No doubt about it !!!!

    The one thing I loved to do while receiving rehab services here was eat in the dining area. I got to socialize with other patients that were here in the building. The staff here were pleasant for the most part. The rehab services were good, I enjoyed that part. This place is clean and friendly.

    They always did an outstanding job, kept it professional at all times, and never had any issues with nursing. There is a CNA there I cannot name but she was amazing, she always did her job and above. I always looked forward to seeing her. Rehab put me through some challenges. I did things I didn't even think I could do and when they wanted me to do more I told them to bring it on, it was phenomenal. As far as dietary goes they can use some improvements in all aspects of their cooking. Overall I would recommend a friend or relative. its really a home away from home, always enjoyed the other residents company. My stay was pleasant and I will miss it

    My stay here was mostly very good. I wasn't crazy about the food , but the breakfast was always pretty descent. The nurses are terrific, all staff were terrific really. Rehab was amazing!!! If I was to ever need rehab services again, Nursecare of Buckhead would be my choice.

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.
