Abstract:

Any retrospective reviews of clinical incidents tend to search for the primary areas of incidence occurrence or interest. As such, there is little published work on the broader basis of what is actually reported across an institution or organisation, rather than what might require singular attention. This work identifies and classifies the natural mapping of the main groups or types of incidents and their relevant subgroupings derived from 1840 reported incidents entered on to a research database of reported clinical incidents. This naturally derived classification should enable an institution to focus on other important issues, apart from those that incur high litigation or malpractice costs.
