Near-miss incidents present useful learning opportunities but frequently go unreported. This study used a computerized trigger tool to identify near-miss incidents in the emergency department (ED). Results show approximately 23% of ED visits during the 13-month study period included a near-miss incident. This analysis suggests computerized trigger tools can be useful to identify near misses that otherwise go unreported.
