Hilltop Health Care Center is excited to be a skilled healthcare member of the Stratis Health Acting Together to Achieve Excellence campaign (ATTAX).
Hilltop Health Care Center 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.
