About the Author
Kristin Haydon, Senior Specialist Performance Improvement of PeaceHealth, has coached leaders and staff to a Lean mindset, primarily through implementation and use of a Daily Management System (DMS) at the local and system level. She partnered with leaders to adapt DMS to manage daily operations related to infection control breaches and subsequent incident response at two PeaceHealth hospitals.
She began her nursing career in the Emergency Department and has held positions in case management, clinical education and administration. As Director of Clinical Excellence responsible for Salem Hospital’s initial Magnet® designation, she became one of the first Kaizen Fellows who traveled to Japan, Virginia Mason and Boeing to learn about Lean. Then, she quickly realized the potential for Lean to impact quality of patient care, and has since moved into a Lean specialist role to guide others to a Lean mindset.
