Bringing Back The “Good Catch!” Program

The Good Catch program was created to improve patient safety by publicly recognizing outpatient staff who proactively identify potential process issues, report them in Penn Medicine Safety Net, help resolve the issues, and share the lessons learned across the organization.

Help us recognize those who promote a culture of safety and prevent harm to patients. Click here to learn more about the Good Catch program and nominate a person or team.

The Good Catch Committee will evaluate all submissions and present awards on a quarterly basis, beginning in December 2016. Click here for additional questions.
