WHY PATIENT SAFETY MATTERS
Patient safety matters to us because Louise H. Batz died from a preventable medical error in 2009. The Louise H. Batz Patient Safety foundation exists to help prevent future medical errors. Our Goal is to empower patients, families, and healthcare providers to work together as a TEAM to improve patient safety. We accomplish this through Providing education, creating awareness, and supporting efforts of advocates and organizations as we ALL work to eliminate preventable harm.
