The reporting requirements for a small number of adverse events may need to be explored in more than one of the categories presented.
For example, a wrong site surgery may also have resulted in a very serious infection in the patient.
We offer the following guidance:
- Use this tool to follow one reportable event category to learn your reporting obligations for that category.
- Re-enter the tool to follow the second reportable event category to learn of any additional reporting requirements.
- If you need to report both facets of the incident to either the Department of Public Health or the Board of Registration in Medicine, submit only one report to each agency detailing both outcomes.
