People Are Our Purpose
Our method of measuring customer satisfaction stems from our belief that individuals are the most important part of healthcare. We believe healthcare should be evaluated just as it is administered—individually.
We understand senior and long-term care because that is where our founder started. Stan Magleby owned and operated a successful nursing and home health facility. The knowledge he gained from his experience became the framework for Pinnacle’s healthcare customer satisfaction interviews.
“Our primary goal is to make our clients better healthcare providers. We feel lucky to serve people who dedicate their lives to others.”

Ease of Use
Pinnacle interviews residents and family members and employees to gather and report their satisfaction levels to senior care providers. The interviews take place over the telephone, providing a convenient way for respondents to easily share their thoughts and feelings.
In the interview, we ask respondents open-ended questions and to provide a rating for other questions. If they rate an area low, we ask clarifying questions to learn why they chose those ratings. Because we do this, operators are better able to understand how to improve in weak areas. Additionally, 98 percent of respondents choose to include their name on their survey. This personal feedback allows the provider to address each individual’s unique needs so that problems can be solved and people can be served better.

This is a collection of text responses that is sorted by date. They come from the three core open-ended questions included on most Pinnacle surveys: “Areas Appreciated,” “Recommended Improvements,” and “Valued Most” statements. This report comes semiannually and includes 12 months of rolling data.
This report begins by showing the percentage of respondents who selected each of the five possible ratings for each question. It then compares that data to the national average. Every question has a detailed report of all text comments that are grouped by rating and sorted by date. The report also provides a long-term historical comparison with year-over-year averages and trends for each question.
