Awards and Achievements
Andrea Stenger of Methodist Fremont Health Honored With Good Catch AwardPublished: Jan. 13, 2023
The Good Catch Award is designed to recognize staff members committed to patient safety.
This recognition is presented regularly 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.

"Andrea recognized that the volume that was dispensed for an intramuscular injection was excessive. Andrea consulted the pharmacy to verify that that provided dose of medication was for an intramuscular injection versus an IV injection. The dose was indeed incorrect, and the correct volume was reconstituted for administration to the patient. Andrea’s attention to detail and reporting of the concern allowed for current processes to be reviewed and built upon to ensure that safe patient care is provided."
Congratulations, Andrea. Thank you for your commitment to keeping our patients and staff safe!
