The Good Catch Award is designed to recognize staff members committed to patient safety.

This recognition is presented monthly and goes to the department in which the good catch occurred. Nominations for the award are taken from reported variances where a near miss is caught. Those variances are flagged for consideration of this award. A near miss is an incident or event that has occurred and had the potential to cause harm but was caught before it reached the patient.

Brandy Eck and Kathy Pullum, both registered nurses in Surgery Pre-Op Services at Methodist Hospital, were recently honored with Good Catch Awards.

The nurses noted a discrepancy between a patient's scheduled surgery and the surgery order recorded in Cerner. Thanks to their catch, they were able to verify the correct procedure.

Congratulations, Brandy and Kathy! Thank you for your commitment to keeping our patients and staff safe.
