Specialty-based, voluntary incident reporting in neonatal intensive care: description of 4846 incident reports.
Snijders C, van Lingen RA, Klip H, Fetter WP, van der Schaaf TW, Molendijk HA, NEOSAFE study group. Arch Dis Child Fetal Neonatal Ed. 2009;94:F210-F215.
Incident reporting systems are one mechanism for hospitals to both identify and potentially prevent adverse events, although they have frequently failed to meet those expectations. This study describes findings from a voluntary system that produced a significant increase in reported neonatal events, many of which were associated with patient morbidity.
