Never Events Analysis of HSIB's National Investigations Report.

Farnborough, UK: Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch; January 2021. 

 

Never events provide organizations with motivation to analyze and learn from errors due to their catastrophic nature. This National Learning Report provides a thematic examination of never events in the National Health Service (NHS). The report found misattribution of incidents as never events in the NHS due to lack of systemic factors as contributors to those events. A revision of the NHS never events list is recommended.
