Maple Lawn has recently joined the Stratis Health Acting Together to Achieve Excellence campaign (ATTAX).

Maple Lawn Nursing Home will participate in this campaign designed to ensure that every nursing home resident receives the highest quality of care. The ATTAX campaign will help instill quality and performance improvement practices aimed at attacking and eliminating healthcare acquired conditions and improve 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. Arlan Swanson, Maple Lawn Administrator said, “Being a part of this group gives us the opportunity to focus even more intently on improving the lives of the people who live and work in our nursing home through a collaborative effort.”

“Federal policy 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 of 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.
