Managing serious errors (Leapfrog Group)
The descriptions for this measure come from source: www.leapfroggroup.org.
“The National Quality Forum, a nonprofit national coalition of physicians, hospitals, businesses and policy-makers, has identified 28 events as occurrences that should never happen in a hospital and can be prevented. They termed them “serious reportable events”, or never events. They include surgical events such as performing the wrong surgical procedure, product or device events such as contaminated drugs or devices and criminal events such as abduction of a patient. To see a complete list of never events go to: http://www.qualityforum.org/Publications/2007/03/Serious_Reportable_Events_in_Healthcare–2006_Update.aspx”
