Sacred Heart Home gets high rating in satisfaction survey
The Little Sisters of the Poor Sacred Heart Home received the sixth top score in the 2012 Nursing Home Family Satisfaction Survey conducted for the Ohio Department of Aging. 

Sacred Heart’s score of 95.63 was the highest from Northwest Ohio.

The survey was conducted by the Scripps Gerontology Center of Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. More than 27,000 family members and 948 homes participated.

The survey asks family members their opinions on such areas as activities, administration, admission, choices, direct care and nursing, meals and dining, social services and therapy.

Two other local homes finished with scores 88 percent or higher, which earned an additional quality point in a reimbursement formula used by the Office of Medical Assistance (Medicaid) to reward quality in nursing homes. They were Otterbein Portage Valley, Pemberville and Ottawa County Riverview Nursing Home, Oak Harbor.
