“I was so moved by your story, by your strength, by your courage, and by your motivation to help others learn from your experience. I want to thank you for opening my eyes today to the possibility that once we start coasting through our job, as we become increasingly comfortable with the profession, we can easily lose sight of the fact that in an instant we can make fatal decisions.” – B.
Our mission at Ridley Barron, Inc. is all about taking personal tragedy and using it for good. Ridley lost his 17 month old son, Josh, due to a medication error just five days after losing his wife in a tragic family car accident. These events could have shattered Ridley’s world. Through faith and determination, he chose to use them as a platform for challenging individuals and institutions to put patient safety first. Since that fateful day in 2004, Ridley has shared this message across the country with hospitals, churches, conferences, and families.
In medical settings, Ridley offers a victim’s perspective on patient safety and offers professional suggestions on how to improve the quality of patient care. His focus is one of hope, healing, and forgiveness for those on both sides of a sentinel event.
