Few incidents reported at Princeton’s Ridgewood Lodge

Few incidents were reported last year at Princeton’s long term care facility Ridgewood Lodge.

According to a statistical report released recently, there were four falls causing injury and one other injury in the 2018-2019 reporting year.

Ridgewood has 37 residents.

“We get very few patient complaints,” said Jon Clare, Interior Health spokesperson. “It’s a really good site.”

The report, in the main, shows the facility to be comparable to other care homes in the province.

Anomalies include a higher than average percentage of patients receiving physical therapy, but a much lower percentage benefiting from recreational therapy.

Ridgewood residents receive 3.25 hours of total direct care per day.
