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.

Registered Nurse, Outpatient Behavioral Health

"Kassi called to follow up with a patient who she discovered had not presented themselves to the Emergency Department after voicing suicidal ideations. The conversation resulted in the patient agreeing to be admitted to the behavioral health inpatient unit for care. Kassi’s time, diligence and supportive essence prevented a possible tragic ending for a patient."  

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