    This is our second time opting to go to Signature Healthcare of Buckhead for rehab of a knee replacement. We found that the nurses on the orthopedic floor are very competent, compassionate, and responsive. The new administration has implemented a number of effective improvements since our visit 2 years ago. The meals are very good and the rehab team is awesome. The rooms are clean, spacious and sometimes private. The rehab team did an awesome job with the left knee replacement 2 years ago and we trust them with the right.

    This facility is so horrible, there IS NO RATING LOW ENOUGH. This place should be shut down. I LOST MY GRANDMOTHER DUE TO a so called "MIXUP" IN MEDICATION a few years back. This caused her to go into CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE. I have now learned from a close friend that she has now LOST HER MOTHER DUE TO PNEUMONIA that came FROM NEGLECT. I have no idea how many lives have been lost due to going here. It pains me that this place is still operating. My blood boils in every review where they give the cut & paste response of taking our "concerns seriously". They have been killing our loved ones for years. I DO NOT USE THIS PHRASE LIGHTLY. THIS IS A MURDER FACTORY. I am looking into how to shut this place down for good. I recommend all victims and those related to do so as well. At the very least, I recommend everyone who's had an issue to FILE A FORMAL COMPLAINT WITH THE STATE OF GA for this place to be SHUT DOWN and for hospitals to send their patients elsewhere. NO HOSPITAL SHOULD SEND A SINGLE PATIENT HERE.

    It's really hard for me to fathom this facility is still opened. The staff members are the most careless caregivers that I've ever seen. The unprofessional behavior shouldn't be tolerated at a facility where people trust you to take care of their loved ones. It is obvious that very few of these staff members have a passion for what they do. They are clearly only there for the pay check. From the regional manager to the CNAs, a much need improvement should happen. DO NOT TAKE YOUR LOVED ONES HERE IF YOU CAN HELP IT. They will paint you a pretty picture of their facility to get you there, but I promise you that 95% of what they tell you won't happen. We have called several times and left messages, but still no call back. Due to my family's experience, I wouldn't recommend this place to a stray dog!

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.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
