Description:
The State Claims Agency works with the HSE to record and analyse adverse events that are reported in the healthcare system. Recording adverse events and examining why and how they happened is an essential part of promoting a patient safety culture. It supports investigation and information for patients and their families, gives services an opportunity to analyse trends and continuously improve, and informs future planning of health services. In Ireland, adverse events reported to the State Claims Agency range from near misses, where no harm was caused, to delays in access to services, to damage to a patient’s health and well-being. A total of 85,918 adverse events were reported in 2011. This is across a healthcare system which has in the region of 4.5 million patient contacts a year.
