LEONARDTOWN, Md. – Lauren Ervin, CNM, was recently named a Patient Safety Hero by our Patient Safety Council! A certified nurse-midwife with MedStar Medical Group Women’s Health at Leonardtown, Lauren was honored for applying our High Reliability Organization (HRO) principles in the Women’s Health & Family Birthing Center.

When a patient’s ultrasound yielded conflicting measurements, Lauren stopped the line to consult the additional expertise of the Radiology team. She ensured the patient and their baby received appropriate care by speaking up for safety.

Join us in thanking Lauren for her commitment to putting our patients first!
