St. Benedict's Senior Community to Participate in Learning Collaborative with Stratis Health

St. Benedict's Senior Community has joined the Stratis Health Acting Together to Achieve Excellence campaign (ATTAX).

St. Benedict's Senior Community will participate in this campaign designed to ensure that every nursing home resident receives the highest quality of care. The ATTAX campaign will instill quality and performance improvement practices aimed at attacking and eliminating healthcare acquired conditions and improving resident satisfaction in Minnesota nursing homes. Supporting the development of strategies for overall quality will be at the heart of this work as well as specific emphasis and resources on improving dementia care and preventing pressure ulcers, falls and urinary tract infections. Successes and best practices from the group will be shared with the Minnesota nursing home community over the next few years.

"Being a part of this partnership with Stratis Health further affirms our commitment to continuously improve the quality of care and life for our residents and ensure a safe environment for our employees," said Christine Bakke, Care Center Administrator of St. Benedict's Senior Community.

"CMS has made transformational quality improvement a priority across the country, and this is such exciting work that we are able to continue as the quality improvement organization with nursing homes in Minnesota," said Jane Pederson, M.D., director, medical affairs, Stratis Health.

This work is supported by the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and is being led by Stratis Health, Minnesota’s Medicare Quality Improvement Organization.
