Congratulations to Jennie Edmundson's Good Catch Award Recipient
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 that had the potential to cause harm but was caught before it reached the patient.
Patient Care Pharmacist
The December Good Catch Award goes to Greta Short, patient care pharmacist at Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital.
Greta noticed that the dose for an order
for Privigen seemed low. She contacted the provider, who agreed it should have been a weight-based dose.
Greta changed the order and then went
to outpatient surgery to share with the RN.
Great job, Greta, and thank you for your dedication to Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital and our patients!
