Critical incident reporting is an important method to detect patient safety hazards and improve care. A research team in one large UK tertiary hospital reviewed cardiac arrest calls and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) events reported to the hospital incident reporting system; ten thematic areas for potential improvement were identified (e.g., failure to rescue, staffing concerns, equipment/drug concerns). Organizations could replicate this longitudinal process to improve high-risk patient safety event outcomes.
