Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't give this place a good overall score, we actually gave it a strong grade in the area of inspections, where it earned a B+. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid places that have a long list of severe deficiencies. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a middle of the road score in the area of short-term care, where it received a B-. Our short-term care ratings are presumably more critical for folks in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.
Does this page answer your questions about Fulton Nursing & Rehab?
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. When calculating a facility's nursing rating, we weigh the number of hours nurses commit to residents and the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these datapoints to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we scored is long-term care, which ended up being a weak spot for this facility. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in the area of long-term care. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category likely don't provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes provide. One of the statistics we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to just 82.080925 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
