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.

"Heather noticed that a patient needed to have a medication prior to the delivery of her baby. The medication was not ordered, and Heather followed up with the provider to clarify if it was needed. The provider confirmed that she had missed ordering this medication and was thankful that Heather caught it and spoke up. Heather’s diligence was essential in preventing what could have been a medical error."

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