With two nursing homes in the city, you only have a couple of choices in Fulton, Mississippi. We awarded this relatively small group of nursing homes a city grade of B, which is a quality grade. We also assessed the facilities in the nearby city of Tupelo, which received a city grade of B-. While there is nothing wrong with this grade, we found the facilities Fulton to be better on the whole. This city's report card was also very consistent as it didn't receive a single poor category grade either. You can read more about these in the next section.
In addition to having quality nursing homes on the whole, this place really excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A+. Few cities performed better in this area. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Fulton received a B in our short-term care category. Finally, we gave the city slightly below average grades for our long-term care and nursing areas.
