#GivingTuesday: The Louise H. Batz Patient Safety Foundation
Reminder: Tomorrow, KaiNexus and I will be hosting a webinar presented by John Toussaint, MD and Paul Pejsa of Catalysis. The title is “When Leaders Collaborate: Finding the A-Ha Moments that Lead to Lean Transformation.” Registration is free and we hope you'll join us.
This blog post and podcast gives a preview of their webinar:
Today is a day known as “Giving Tuesday,” to follow up the commercially-driven “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday” days. It's a great day to give to any cause or organization that's meaningful to you.
One organization that I choose to give to throughout the year is the Louise H. Batz Patient Safety Foundation.
The Batz Foundation produces practical and helpful guidebooks and apps to help protect patients during their hospital stay or other healthcare encounters.
Batz Foundation founder and CEO Laura Batz did this webinar for KaiNexus earlier this year. In the webinar, she told her mom's story and talked about the work of the Foundation, along with two healthcare professionals who have collaborated with her:
As you might know, all proceeds from the Practicing Lean anthology book that I edited are being donated to the Batz Foundation, over $3000 so far.
If you've read the book, one other way you can help is by writing a review on Amazon.
