Last week’s speaking engagement at Bozeman Health’s 5th Annual Safety Summit was an absolutely incredible experience! I gave nine lectures in two days, to well over 900 of their clinical staff, upper level administrators, safety coaches, etc.. Additionally, I also had the great privilege of an in depth tour of Bozeman’s pharmacy departments to see, first hand, their pharmacy workflow and how the pharmacists and pharmacy technicians always put medication safety first! I want to genuinely thank everyone at Bozeman Health from the bottom of my heart, for successfully implementing a true culture of safety, amongst ALL the amazing staff, at their healthcare facilities in Montana!

Really looking forward to heading to Washington D.C. again, the week after next, representing the Emily Jerry Foundation. I feel very humbled and privileged to have been invited to participate in the Roundtable on Patient Safety and Hospital Compounding on October 11th. We will all be working together to find comprehensive ways to save lives from preventable medication errors and put a stop to tragedies, like what happened, not only with my daughter Emily, but also with so many others, before they actually happen.
The Roundtable on Patient Safety and Hospital Compounding aims to bring together key stakeholders to review the last five years in hospital medication safety advances and clinical practices; consider where further refinements can benefit patients and providers; and to develop consensus recommendations that advance the next critical phase of best practices and research recommendations.
