Vanessa Kinnaman Honored With Good Catch Award

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 and had the potential to cause harm but was caught before it reached the patient. 


Good Catch Award Recipient

Vanessa Kinnaman
Methodist Fremont Health LDRP/Peds

"Vanessa was thinking proactively when she voiced a concern for possible supply need, and actions were taken to investigate the reason for the missing supplies. Without her voicing concern, the potential of a sentinel event in the future was feasible. Vanessa’s foresight and voice is a great example of a 'Good Catch' and the need to speak up when you see something amiss."

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