Pennsylvania requires all acute care facilities to report incidents and serious events to the Pennsylvania Patient Safety Reporting System (PA-PSRS). This report compiles reports submitted for Q1 and Q2 2022 and compares results to previous years. There was a decrease in the total number of reports submitted, but serious and high harm events increased. The most frequently reported event continues to be Error Related to Procedure/Treatment/Test followed by Complication of Procedure/Treatment/Test, Medication Error, and Fall. In November 2023, an update was published reflecting the addition of Q3 and Q4 2022 data.
