Melissa Watkins, Amy Myers, and Christina Marble, labor & delivery at Women and Children's Hospital, were recognized for a remarkable accomplishment.
They went the entire year of 2013 without having a single diversion, override, missed documentation of charges or missed medication reconciliation. They have proven that these things can be done with the right attitude, sense of accountability, core values, systems and structures to support their success. This is an amazing accomplishment toward patient safety.
These nurses are a testament to the importance of attention to detail and thoroughness in the performance of their job duties, and they have demonstrated role model accountability for these important patient safety initiatives.
