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.

"Josh recognized that a patient’s symptoms were not improving and, if anything, were escalating. Josh continued to voice his concerns, and in doing so, he aided in pushing forward a very significant diagnosis. Josh’s continued efforts to advocate for the patient prevented possible harm from occurring."

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