My beautiful Emily would have been eight years old a few days ago on February 24th. Words cannot express how it feels, or how meaningful it is as Emily’s father, to be honoring my little girl by announcing our foundation’s new program, The Emily Jerry Pediatric Safe Patient Initiative and by giving this very important keynote speech at University Hospitals to begin National Patient Safety Week. The Emily Jerry Foundation has been working closely with University Hospitals over the past year, to find effective ways to collaborate in the area of patient safety, learning from Emily’s story, and trying to prevent similar errors from occurring again.
The Emily Jerry Foundation is determined to help make our nation’s, world renowned, medical facilities safer for everyone, beginning with our babies and children. We are accomplishing this very important objective by focusing on increasing public awareness of key patient safety related issues and identifying technology and best practices that are proven to minimize the “human error” component of medicine. Through our ongoing efforts The Emily Jerry Foundation is working hard to save lives every day.
Thank You So Very Much for Your Support! ~Chris Jerry
We'd love to hear your stories and comments. Together we can save lives.
