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.

"Alyssa recognized the signs of a bowel leak/sepsis in a patient and continued to page physicians until intervention was appropriately taken. Her diligence likely saved the patient's life."

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