    I moved from Florida to work here at Nursecare of Buckhead. I was extremely nervous because I was hundreds of miles away from home. I was accepted as family from day one. The administrator is deeply caring about her staff and residents. She does her very best to make sure that every question or concern is addressed with professionalism and integrity. There is always going to be negative reviews however, our staff is dedicated and hard-working. Sometimes, they are berated by family members who give little to no recognition for the strenuous work they provide daily. Often times, they are criticized by family members for anything they perceive as "wrong" but neglect to give credit to the staff members for all the "right" things they do such as, sitting with a resident to console them after the loss of a family member or taking the time to feed and fellowship with residents that are unable to do so themselves. Nothing is more heart wrenching than to see a staff member go to a private area and break down after hearing that one of their residents passed away. Only the individuals that work in this type of environment can appreciate how hard it is to not have the ability to say goodbye to someone they have cared for daily throughout the years. Our staff strive for excellence but unfortunately, there will always be individuals that are not satisfied in any circumstance. Our administrator and staff have high expectations that we try to meet and/or exceed. We are always finding new ways to grow as a team. Our staff is compiled of professionals with years of experience and education in their field. I am personally grateful and proud to say that I am team Nursecare of Buckhead!

    Notice how those who have rated this place above a 1 did not leave comments. Wonder if someone is pumping up Their ratings. This place is awful and full of negligence. Not sure how the VA could approve of this. But then again the VA is not known for being good either.

    My father was in this h@ll hole for one month and came with a bed sore and said the nurses there were mean and aggressive whenever he asked for something. Never put your loved ones in this unprofessional h#ll hole

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.

Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
