My mother is a resident of Fulton commons for many years. The decline in patient care in the last 2 to 3 years is very easy to see. You as the family member have to visit your family member every day if not they will ignore the needs of your family. Mr. Norton is an ass, all he does is yes you to death, and he does nothing to provide better care for the patient. It's never the fault of Fulton commons never. I hate the place I'm sorry my loved one is there. The care was much better 2 to 3 years ago. I don't know what changed but it's not good. They should get rid of all the aids and start fresh, they should suspend anyone without pay if there is a complaint about them. Don't place your loved one in this nursing home. run run run run far far away.

I am speaking based on my personal experience with this place while assisting my 82 year old Grandma who spent a week here after a leg surgery.

Pros: New Building, decent natural light, no odors, easy parking, social workers were okay to work with, responsive front desk reception.

Cons: Overworked staff, aids are a mixed bag, some friendly, some rude and violent, nurses were terse and abrupt, no rehabilitation aside from the patients own desire to do so.

The staff are overworked and not interested in actually rehabilitating anyone. While I was there I even heard a loud 5 minute verbal fight between 4 of the aids and nurses at the nursing station station during an argument about who was responsible for what. The staff provide the minimal amount of support to do everything possible to reduce the amount of time they needed with each patient. My grandma quickly fell into a depression when she arrived here after a surgery because Fulton Commons is essentially a nursing home, but with the addition of a visiting doctor who spends a few hours per day on the floor each day and a few social workers who can help arrange for follow-up care. Aides would ask my Grandma if she was wanted meals or to do physical therapy (working around) and she would shake her head ??No??. But instead of insisting that she start moving and eat meals they would just accept her word and let her lay on her back, where she quickly began a death decent. Fortunately my Grandma had some family and myself around to visit and insist that she gets up, eat and step outside while we drove her to a few places. (I did not see any activities at Fulton Commons aside from a small TV in the common cafeteria). Without us distracting her and insisting she get up, she would have quickly wasted away because the staff would have allowed her to lie in bed all day.

Getting her catheter removed (which was put in after her surgery) was also a huge issue: The medical staff would rather of had her keep it in then try to remove it, since it could have created more work for the nurses to have the potential of needing to reinsert the catheter if she would have been unable to pee herself afterward. Fortunately she was able to pee after the catheter was removed. But without our insistence, they would have left it in until she was released (which they assumed would be after 3 weeks).

Seeing that the Fulton Commons was doing nothing to help rehabilitate my Grandma, and with my Grandma frustrated and depressed to be there, we insisted that she be discharged in 2 days to go back to her home, but with a visiting nurse and home care. When she was released, they provided no instructions on what her ongoing would care should consist of (she had a large hematoma that required heating pads 2x a day, elevation, and dressing changes). The visiting nurse who was assigned to her was furious with Fulton Commons that they would have sent her home with no information on her necessary treatment.

In summary: unless the patient has a strong advocate (friend or family) who is actively engaged in making sure the patience??s mental and physical well being is being looked after, an elderly patient will quickly go downhill and die at the Fulton Commons. Perhaps it??s a typical example of the type of health care the elderly receive these days in America, however I was shocked and angered at how little focus there was on the patient??s well being- Fulton Commons is a for profit business and the patients are a commodity to be marginalized with the maximum dollar extracted from their insurance before releasing them to die soon after. Fulton Commons is a horrible place to end up at. Avoid sending anyone you care about here. You have been warned.

Having had relatives in other nursing homes I can tell you it is not just another nursing home. My mother was there for almost three months after a fall and broken pelvis. From the receptionist to the people who wash the floors the staff was always courteous and caring. Sure the food was not gourmet but neither was the hospital! Once we learned that they cannot add salt that explained it. Condiments were always available if the level of spicing was not to her liking. The rehab staff was superb and made sure she walked better than before her fall before they would let her go home. Even the doctor was there everyday, which I can tell you was a rare occurrence in other homes we experienced. Overall, a very satisfying experience and although we hope we never have to repeat, we would choose them again in a heart beat.

Place is new, clean and well kept, but not to be fooled, not any different than any other nursing home. Very important for family to be visible and help out. Staff does not over extend themselves to be friendly or helpful, except for a few who are working there for the right reasons. Food served has much to be desired, and not a good selection; take it or leave it. Was disappointed that they didn't acknowledge my mother's passing; no card or anything from the facility. Very cold, just a business.
