PMID:  17975466     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
With only 175 reports submitted into an available close call reporting system during 2.5 years, the Good Catch Program was implemented to promote 3 strategies: (1) changing terminology from "close call" to "good catch," (2) implementing an "end-of-shift safety report," and (3) executive leadership sponsored incentives. The authors discuss the program and its positive outcomes in increasing potential error reporting.
