Great principles for work and for life!
I’m reading a couple books by Eliyahu Goldratt right now and would highly recommend anything he has written!
These principles are most definitely applicable to my field of healthcare quality and patient safety.
I had a family member ask me what Patient Safety is in an attempt to understand what it is that I do. When I explained to him that death numbers from complications related to errors in health care are right up there with cancer and car crashes and that my work revolves around improving processes to make care safer, he replied, “Oh, I thought maybe Patient Safety Officer meant that you stood outside the hospital elevators to make sure patients had seatbelts on!” 🙂
Oh, sometimes I wish it were that simple. But principles like this can make keeping patients safe much simpler!
