The Sebastian Ferrero Foundation Receives a $5 Million Gift From Google Executive for Children's Hospital
Date:9/3/2009

t and Luisa Ferrero created the Sebastian Ferrero Foundation in memory of their happy and healthy 3-year-old son, Sebastian, who died in October 2007 as a result of a series of preventable medical errors in Gainesville, Fla. The mission of the Foundation is: to advocate and fundraise for a state-of-the-art, full-service children's hospital in Gainesville, Florida while promoting excellence in patient safety and insuring that all families are treated with compassion, courtesy and dignity.

Since the Foundation's inception in 2007, the UF College of Medicine has incorporated new patient safety and quality elements into its curriculum and a "Condition H" urgent help line has been established in Shands at UF to provide patients and families with immediate access to a rapid response team. More recently, the Foundation provided the leadership to coalesce a group of local organizations to advocate for a dedicated pediatric ER at Shands. The new ER will include separate pediatric waiting and treatment areas. In 2008, the UF Center for Leadership and Service named the Foundation the "Most Outstanding Community Agency" and the Foundation also received the Institute of Safe Medication Practices' national "Cheers Award" for having set a superlative standard of excellence in the prevention of medication errors and adverse drug events.
