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.

"Carrie identified that the medication she pulled from the omnicell was labeled incorrectly. She then preceded to check the other medications in the same slot to make sure they were labeled correctly and found two more that were labeled incorrectly."

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