Publications Task Force Chair
An attorney by trade, Darrell Ranum has been part of the QUAD A team for 11 years. He currently serves as Chair of the Publications Task Force.
He works closely with the marketing department to select committee members and process article submissions for publication.
Darrell became involved in patient safety through his work with medical malpractice insurance. His fascination with providing safe healthcare systems led him to publish several articles on the clinical causes of patient harm based on data from medical malpractice lawsuits.
That desire to learn and share knowledge on patient safety provides both employees of QUAD A and their clients with a unique opportunity to better understand the intricacies of healthcare accreditation.
Darrell holds a bachelor’s degree in biology and is certified in Medical Technology. In addition, he is certified in Clinical Risk Management and is a member of the American Society for Healthcare Risk Management.
He holds a simple but profound philosophy that motivates him in his work.
“All people, regardless of status, should be treated with dignity and respect. This includes employees,” he explained. “They are inclined to treat customers how they are treated by management.”
Darrell has been married to his wife, Barbara, for 46 years. They have three children, Katherine, Curtis, and Kevin. His hobbies include travel, kayaking, hiking, photography, reading, teaching, and rebuilding a 1954 Chevrolet Bel Air he purchased at age 16.
