SafetyFirst Great Catch: Nicki Blasi

Our Lady of Peace

Nicki Blasi, RN, Our Lady of Peace

Thanks to the sharp eyes of nurse Nicki Blasi, potential patient harm was averted.

While administering medications at Our Lady of Peace, Nicki saw that a dose of the drug Ativan was mislabeled with the wrong dosage. Nicki immediately notified nursing services and the pharmacy. She then made sure she returned the incorrect dose not given to the patient back to the pharmacy.

By having a Questioning Attitude, and taking the time to Stop and Resolve, Nicki made a great safety catch, ensuring a patient didn’t receive the incorrect medication.

Way to go, Nicki!
