Good Catch! Island Health encourages near-miss reporting
Island Health is committed to promoting a culture of learning and improvement, and near miss reporting, together with manager reviews of near miss events and, discussion of findings with their teams is an important part of the organization’s focus on cultural change.
To encourage near miss reporting and recognize staff, they held a competition in conjunction with Canadian Patient Safety Week where more than 300 events from different program areas were submitted. Staff voted for their favourites via an e-learning hub. The winner of the “Catch of the Day” contest was the Oceanside Health Centre.
