Budd Terrace at Wesley Woods Receives Highest Rating from U.S.News & World Report Washington, D.C., February 26, 2013 – Budd Terrace at Wesley Woods has received the highest possible overall rating of five stars in U.S. News & World Report’s fifth annual “Best Nursing Homes”, available exclusively at http://www.usnews.com/best-nursing-homes. The Best Nursing Homes 2013 ratings highlight the top nursing homes in each city and state, out of nearly 16,000 facilities nationwide. U.S. News’s goal is to help users find a home with a strong track record of good care. Best Nursing Homes draws on data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, a federal agency that assesses homes in three categories – health inspections, level of nurse staffing, and quality of care – and gives each an overall rating. U.S. News awarded the “Best Nursing Home” designation to homes that earned an overall rating of five stars from CMS in January 2013. Budd Terrace's Administrator added, “Budd Terrace at Wesley Woods is extremely fortunate to have a highly trained and qualified staff to provide these services to our seniors. This prestigious recognition validates the commitment to quality care our physicians and staff exemplify each day.” Along with ratings, U.S. News has published a series of articles and a step-by-step video to guide users in choosing the right nursing home. The articles and ratings are exclusive to the website and aren’t expected to appear in print. “Fewer than one out of every five nursing homes got an overall rating of five stars,” said Avery Comarrow, U.S. News Health Rankings Editor. “All seniors deserve the best nursing care available, and these are homes that merit their consideration by demonstrating such high quality.”
I made my first trip to Bud Terrace at Wesley Woods today. I have been a social worker in a nursing home for 16 years, I was very impressed with my experience there. The facility was bright and cheerful and very clean and well kept. The staff was very friendly and gracious. All the residents that I observed were very clean and groomed. Staff was interacting well with resident as they met them in the hallways. And the resident were smiling and seemed very content. A five star facility I am sure!
The care for my 93yo mom has been wonderful. Staff has been very attentive and the facility has responded to every request we have made . The PT OT Speech rehab has been excellent and made all the difference in her recovery. My brother was there a couple of years ago and they worked miracles on him in rehabing him from bedridden and ill to fully recovered in 30 days. I would not hesitate to recommend this facility.
Outstanding care… We live in New Orleans and traveled to ATL for my mother to have spine surgery at the Emory Spine and Orthopeadic Hospital. She spent 11 days at Budd Terrace after her 2nd spine surgery in 10 months. Every one of the nursing and therapy staff members were wonderful. Very patient and family centered care.
My wife spent three weeks in rehab after a heart bypass surgery. The staff was really friendly and helpful. The rooms were nice and roomy although certainly could be updated. I wish the patients socialized more, however.
The rehab dept and equipment cannot be beat! Greg and Melvin were especially attentive to Jack. This 90 year old kept improving post stroke he got to use his 100 days and is still getting better
I just wanted to know if anyone needed general housecleaning or care.
