After enduring the heartbreaking loss of his 2-year-old daughter, Emily, to a medication mishap, Chris Jerry has committed his life mission to seek out technologies and methodologies that can forestall similar medication errors from afflicting others. Initiated in 2006, his relentless efforts have involved collaborations with top-tier medical technology innovators and global healthcare providers, unearthing healthcare strategies proven to be life-saving. His story underscores EQUASHIELD®'s commitment to tomorrow with zero medication errors utilizing lifesaving technologies.
The pharmacist who prepared Emily's dose, having served a half-year sentence in prison, completed 400 hours of community service and, endured a period of house arrest, agreed to a plea of no contest to involuntary manslaughter. Subsequently, in an extraordinary act of forgiveness, Christopher Jerry publicly pardoned Cropp. Their unique journey then took them across the country, visiting numerous medical conferences and facilities. They contributed to the medical community by providing Continuing Education (CE) and Continuing Medical Education (CME)-accredited lectures and presentations. These sessions offered their distinct insights into the tragic events that unfolded, emphasizing the importance of safety and efficiency in healthcare.
