Thornton Manor receives highest marks in State evaluation ...

Thornton Manor in Lansing has received a “Deficiency Free” result on its annual survey conducted in May by the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals. The annual  survey, which is conducted over several days, covers over 500 quality, safety and performance issues such as medication management, proper skin care, assessment of residents’ needs, respect for residents’ rights and dignity, food service, environment and administration. The complete evaluation includes a tour of the facility, review of residents’ clinical records, and interviews with residents and family members about life and the care they are receiving. Thornton Heights Assisted Living also received an “Insufficiency-Free” survey in January 2018. With the increase in regulations, achieving the distinction of a “deficiency-free” rating is considered a very prestigious achievement. These surveys, and their subsequent ratings, are a useful tool for current and prospective residents, their families and health care practitioners to make informed choices about the quality of a long-term care facility.
