Today’s post a link to my article written for the LinkedIn “Influencers” series:
Part of my article:
“But, it makes me think… if hospitals CAN be extra cautious and make sure people are following protocols in situations like this, why aren’t they doing a better job of protecting patients from the everyday infections that kill so many each year, even in the “best” hospitals? Why does the media generally ignore the deaths from post-surgical infections, central line associated bloodstream infections, and the like? How do we ensure that everybody protocols are actually followed 100% of the time? How do we make sure that checklists are in place and always followed?”
Please post a comment here or on LinkedIn (there’s likely to be more discussion here about processes and culture and more on LinkedIn about politics and blame).
I’m curious to hear what you think as a Lean thinker.
