The Ridgeview Le Sueur Nursing Home & Rehab Center was named an Infection Prevention and Control Data Champion by Lake Superior Quality Innovation Network in recognition of its successful participation in the national Nursing Home Clostridioides difficile Initiative.
As a participant in the initiative, the Ridgeview Le Sueur Nursing Home & Rehab Center accurately and consistently collected and tracked their C. difficile data for each month of 2018 and submitted it to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention National Healthcare Safety Network database. Participants helped establish a baseline for C. difficile infections, which is an essential step in quality reporting and reduction of C. difficile in nursing homes.
