2018 Patient Safety Core Value Award Recipient
Nominated by the Jill Grant

In response to a change in the clinical process involving contraband searches on the Brebeuf program, Ben was pro-active in creating a document for staff that was instrumental in streamlining the process. It not only assisted in the tracking and reporting of contraband, but was especially mindful in maintaining the dignity and respect of patients. Through the use of this document, his verbal skills and respectful tone during contraband searches, Ben goes above and beyond his duty to maintain patient and staff safety. Its use has increased transparency as he openly discusses the reasons contraband security checks are important, and helps to mitigate risk. Ben uses his many interpersonal skills to work with his team and the patients to do all this in a timely manner.
