Last week an international conversation was sparked about medical errors, after a study revealed that they are the third leading cause of death in America. I had the opportunity to join the conversation and share my own story of an error I made, and the work that is taking place at UHN right now through Caring Safely, to change the way we address medical errors and create a culture of safety. If you missed it, you can listen
here. As UHN's Chief Safety Officer I want to say thank you for your commitment to creating a culture of safety. I am so proud of the work happening throughout the organization.
This week we are making sure our nurses know how much we appreciate their incredible work, by sharing what
"A UHN Nurse Is…" in honour of Nursing Week. We are so lucky to have over 4,100 nurses, because A UHN Nurse Is compassionate, hardworking, committed to safety and essential to the fabric of our organization. It comes as no surprise that a number of UHN nurses have been nominated for the Toronto Star's Nightingale Award. This award is a wonderful opportunity to recognize the remarkable work our nurses do every day and I offer my warmest congratulations to those who were nominated. You can see the full list
here. Please let our nurses know how much you appreciate all they do by completing the sentence and using the hashtag #ANurseIs on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
Over the past few weeks we have been having great conversations about UHN's IT Transformation agenda and today we continue the conversation at Toronto Western. We will be live streaming the session, so if you can't make it out, you can join us
here. Again information for the town halls are:
I look forward to continuing my conversation with all of you about our work and our future.
