Congratulations to October's Good Catch Award Recipient
The "GOOD CATCH” Award is designed to recognize a staff member 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 that had the potential to cause harm but was caught before it reached the patient.
Jen’s good catch relates to a patient that she recognized had a tracheostomy which was not communicated in report nor was an order in for care of the airway. Jen assessed the airway, placed proper orders and placed all emergency equipment at the bedside for the patient.
Congratulations to Jen! Thank you for your commitment to keeping our patients safe.
