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. 

Good Catch Award Recipient

Blanca Navarrete
Cleaning Technician, Environmental Services
Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital

"Blanca was on an inpatient unit and noticed that a patient was attempting to get out of bed. She notified an RN in the hallway to make them aware. This was a good catch on her behalf and prevented a possible fall!"

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