Reporting Patient Safety Events
Any event that results in actual harm to a patient, or could have resulted in harm should be reported through the Patient Safety Reporting System.
Learning from actual events and near misses is key to improving patient safety and preventing harm to the patients we serve. All events are screened within hours, trended over time and analyzed to identify ways to improve. You play a critical role in this process when you report patient safety events!
