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.

"Maria was reviewing a medication order and noted that the order did not include the normal labs associated with patients receiving that specific medication. After investigating further, it was determined that the medication was entered on the wrong patient. Her diligence and questioning caught a near-miss event!"

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