Report and Document

Reporting medication incidents and near-miss events is a mandatory part of Safety IQ. Reporting is the foundational first step in detecting and understanding medication incidents. While reporting on its own does not necessarily improve patient safety, high-quality, detailed reporting translates into high-quality analysis and improvement plans that can reduce risk.

Documentation is important from two different perspectives: measuring and monitoring the effectiveness of process or procedure changes and for regulatory compliance and review. Think of your documentation as a road-map to improving patient safety and professional accountability.
