PINE RIVER — Good Samaritan Society-Pine River has joined the Stratis Health Acting Together to Achieve Excellence campaign (ATTAX). Good Samaritan Society-Pine River 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 health care acquired conditions and improving resident satisfaction in Minnesota nursing homes. 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 group gives us the opportunity to focus even more intently on improving the lives of the people who live and work in our community of care,” Campus Administrator Karen Prososki said.

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