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.

"Chelsi had received a patient phone call related to an upcoming planned procedure. During the conversation, Chelsi recognized that the patient was likely not in a clear state of mind and took action to ensure patient safety. Chelsi contacted law enforcement for a welfare check, notified the provider of conversation and ultimately coordinated the cancellation of the procedure until a later date. Chelsi’s attention to detail, concern for patient safety and prompt investigation encompasses the patient safety definition. Chelsi’s actions are a great example of a 'Good Catch.' Her excellent patient-centered care is appreciated and celebrated! We thank her for her ability to create a patient safety culture and lead the way to zero patient harm!"

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