Kaiser Ombuds was Victim of Chatsworth Train Crash

One of the victims of the Metrolink accident in Southern California was Beverly Mosely, an HealthCare Ombuds Mediator with Kaiser Permanente. According to an email from Dr. Benjamin K. Chu, president of Kaiser Permanente Southern California:
Beverly Mosely, ombudsman for Panorama City Medical Center, was killed in the accident. Beverly, who worked for Kaiser Permanente for more than 20 years in a variety of roles, is survived by her mother, two adult daughters - Nicki and Tina - and a two-month old grandson, Kingston. She enjoyed music, especially jazz, and had a beautiful singing voice. She also liked to travel and golf.

When her colleagues speak about Beverly and her work, they mention her compassion and her knack for knowing when someone needed a hug. They say she had an ability to connect with people and a smile that would light up a room. She was known as a "guardian angel" to our patients and their families during some of the most challenging times in their lives.
