Quality improvement

Quality of food is vitally important to quality of life for seniors. In Minnesota, skilled nursing facilities are surveyed yearly on food enjoyment and mealtime. Many care centers are including food enjoyment as part of a quality improvement project. The MN Department of Human Services gives providers the opportunity to earn additional funds by using quality surveys in quality improvement. PDN is partnering with communities on quality projects. Through menu development, staff training, and resident engagement, we are achieving results and exceeding goals!

“It takes a giant team effort to accomplish such stunning results. My thanks to EVERYONE who contributed to this project. “ - Brenda, Adminstrator
“Eating here is like going to a new restaurant and trying things on the menu, and I love it since I cannot do that now.” - Rita, Care center resident
