GUIDANCE ON THE REPORTING AND HANDLING OF SERIOUS
INCIDENTS AND OTHER PATIENT RELATED CONCERNS / NO
SURPRISES
Background
The existing NHS Wales serious incident (SI) reporting requirements have been in place
since April 2003 (Reporting of Patient-Related Serious Adverse Incidents letter issued by
John Hill-Tout). In addition to the SI process, all NHS organisations are required to report
all patient safety incidents (irrespective of seriousness and degree of harm) to the National
Patient Safety Agency (NPSAs) Reporting and Learning System (RLS). This is to inform
the prioritisation and development of safety solutions, including rapid response reports and
alerts, in addition to contributing to data which is published on a national and
organisational basis.
The reporting of SIs to the Welsh Assembly Government and NPSA does not exclude the
requirement to report to other bodies, e.g. Healthcare Inspectorate Wales, Health & Safety
Executive (RIDDOR), Information Commissioners Office, Police, Coroner, as appropriate
and as required by each individual body.

Definitions
The definition of a SI in this context extends beyond those which impact directly on
patients. The NPSA has suggested the following definition which we would wish to adopt
in NHS Wales:
A SI requiring investigation is defined as an incident that occurred in relation to NHS
funded services and care resulting in:

the unexpected or avoidable death of one or more patients, staff, visitors or


members of the public;

permanent harm to one or more patients, staff, visitors or members of the public or
where the outcome requires life-saving intervention or major surgical/medical
intervention or will shorten life expectancy (this includes incidents graded under the
NPSA definition of severe harm);

a scenario that prevents or threatens to prevent an organisations ability to continue


to deliver health care services, for example, actual or potential loss or damage to
property, reputation or the environment;

a person suffering from abuse;

adverse media coverage or public concern for the organisation or the wider NHS;

the core set of Never events as updated on an annual


http://www.nrls.npsa.nhs.uk/resources/collections/never-events/core-list/
2010/11 this includes: wrong site surgery
retained instrument post-operation

basis.
For

wrong route administration of chemotherapy


misplaced naso-gastric or orogastric tube not detected prior to use
inpatient suicide using non-collapsible rails
escape from within the secure perimeter of medium or high security mental
health services by patients who are transferred prisoners
in-hospital maternal death from post-partum haemorrhage after elective
caesarean section
intravenous administration of mis-selected concentrated potassium chloride

Reporting arrangements for reporting serious incidents and other


concerns/no surprises to the Welsh Assembly Government
Since April 2010, all serious incidents or no surprises (sensitive issues) have been
reported, electronically, to the Improving Patient Safety Team Mailbox at the Assembly
Government.
NHS Organisations are now required to:

Complete a revised SI notification form (form 1) for the reporting of all serious
incidents (attached at appendix 1) or complete form 2 for the reporting of no
surprises (attached at appendix 2). Please note the forms are protected so that the
title of the form and the text prompt boxes can not be altered. The field boxes in
bold that are completely grey are for Welsh Assembly Government use only;

Ensure that the notification form provides as much information as is available.


However, please ensure at all times that there are no patient or staff identifiable
details (e.g. patient name, dates of birth, home address, staff names etc);

Send the completed notification form to improvingpatientsafety@wales.gsi.gov.uk


within 24 hours of the incident;

Password protect each notification form;

Ensure that each notification form is signed off by the CEO or an Executive
Director. An electronic signature should be attached to the form.

Please note: Notification forms will be sent back to the organisation if there is no
executive sign off or if it is not password protected.
Within 24 hours of receipt, the Assembly Government will respond to the notification by
returning an electronic copy of the SI form which will confirm:

The initial grading of the incident which will indicate the timescale of investigation
(as defined below); and,

The Assembly Government reference number, which will be the number used in all
future correspondence relating to the incident.

For incidents that potentially may attract national or significant media attention, please
immediately contact a member of the Improving Patient Safety Team (IPST), who will
liaise with the Assembly Government Press Office. Appendix 3 indicates the contacts
2

detail of Assembly Government officials within the IPST for your organisations. Direct
contact should only be made with the Assembly Government Press Office out of usual
working hours. The out-of-hours press office number is 029 2089 8099 and the answer
phone will give the contact number of the duty press officer.

Grading of Incidents
The initial grading of a SI is undertaken on a case by case basis and will clarify the level of
investigation required and monitoring approach by the Assembly Government. All
incidents submitted to the Assembly Government are reviewed on a weekly basis. If
during these review meetings it is decided that the initial grading is inappropriate, it will be
revised and you will be informed of this change, plus any further action or information that
we may require.
Should an organisation wish to discuss the grading assigned to an incident they should
contact the relevant Assembly Government official (as shown on appendix 3). A table
summarising the grading, expected response and timescales is attached at appendix 4.
This has been adapted to suit the Wales context from the NPSA National Framework for
Reporting and Learning from Serious Incidents Requiring Investigation.
It is expected that the level of investigation is consistent with the triggers and levels of
RCA investigation published by NPSA (see appendix 5).

Definitions of grading
Grade 0
Concerns currently and commonly referred to as a no surprise and/or where it is initially
unclear whether a serious incident has occurred will be graded 0. Unless further
information is received, Assembly Government will automatically close the incident after 3
days and no further correspondence with the Assembly Government is required. However
organisations will wish to assure themselves of a proportionate and appropriate response
and ensure arrangements are in place to reduce the risk of re-occurrence.
If following initial notification it becomes clear that the issue is an SI then further
information should be sent to the Assembly Government and the grading will be reviewed.
Grade 1
It is expected that a comprehensive investigation (RCA level 2 investigation) will need to
be completed by the organisation within 2 calendar months. In order to close this
incident we will require confirmation that an appropriate SI investigation has been
undertaken; has been reported to an appropriate committee; an action plan developed and
where relevant has identified any actions for wider learning and dissemination. A
closure/update report form should be completed for this purpose as attached at appendix
6. This should also be sent to improvingpatientsafety@wales.gsi.gov.uk. The report will
be reviewed by the relevant Assembly Government officials. They will confirm that they
are content will all actions undertaken and close the incident or seek further
information/action before confirming closure.
If an incident investigation cannot be completed within the timescale agreed the
organisation should complete the closure/update form as far as is possible and seek an
extension to the timescale.
Grade 2
This will follow a similar process to the above. A comprehensive investigation is required,
and in some cases the incident may be referred for independent external review by HIW or
3

other regulatory bodies etc. Grade 2 incidents will be subject to ongoing monitoring by
Assembly Government and final agreement through its Patient Safety Committee that the
incident has been investigated appropriately and thoroughly before closure.
Examples of such incidents could include mental health homicides, maternal deaths,
clusters of similar incidents and never events.

Monitoring and Closure of Incidents


Closure forms and investigation reports (as necessary) for Grade 1 and 2 incidents should
be sent to the IPS mailbox. Meetings will only be held with organisations as necessary.
These will be dependant on the types of incidents, the grading levels, trend and themes of
incidents submitted or if there is concern over the standard or timeliness of the
investigation.

Public Services Ombudsman for Wales and Independent Review


Investigations
In relation to reports that detail the investigation conducted by the Public Services
Ombudsman for Wales (PSOW) and the Independent Review Panel (IRP), into a concern
raised about an NHS Organisation, a copy of the report is also sent to the Welsh Assembly
Government. NHS Organisations are required to inform the PSOW and the IRP how they
have addressed any recommendations outlined in the report and NHS Organisation are
now required to automatically send a copy of any update/action plan to the
Improvingpatientsafety@wales.gsi.gov.uk as well as the PSOW and IRP.

Learning from Incidents


It is key that the outcome of any investigation is used to maximise opportunities for
learning and quality improvement. This should be a key element in our overall attempts to
reduce adverse events and avoidable harm to patients/service users in line with the aims
set out in 1000 Lives Plus programme and individual organisations local priorities. As well
as local learning, organisations are expected to contribute to the wider opportunities for
shared learning. This should be identified when completing the incident closure form.
Issues and learning arising from incidents and complaints will be considered at the
Assembly Government Patient Safety Committee in order to determine any action
required, particularly at a national level Regular reports will also be compiled for the
Director General/Chief Executive NHS Wales and the executive team to help inform policy
development and priorities.

Appendix 4 Grading of serious incidents

Action required:
Notification only for no surprises e.g media coverage of an issue, temporary capacity issues, or if it is unclear if
a serious incident has occurred at this stage.
The organisation must update the Improving Patient Safety Team (IPST) with further information within three
working days of a grade 0 incident being notified.
If within three working days it is found not to be a serious incident, it will be closed by WAG. Should any further
issues arise the HB/Trust should send a further updated report to IPST.
A CAMHS admission to an adult ward should always be notified. This will be graded according to the details of
each individual case
If a serious incident has occurred it will be regraded as a grade 1 or 2.

Root Cause Analysis Investigation Report


National Patient Safety Agency
RCA Investigation Report Template - Guidance
The following headings are designed to improve the recording of information currently considered good
practice for investigation reports. These headings will be evaluated over time to confirm or challenge that
understanding.
PLEASE READ - Instruction for use of this RCA Report Template
1. Determine the level of investigation to be undertaken
Refer to the NPSAs Three Levels of investigation (Level 1 = Concise; Level 2 = Comprehensive; Level
3 = Independent), to the NPSASs Triggers for Investigation, and to your own organisational policy and
terms of reference.
2. Delete all ROWS not required for the level of investigation being undertaken
The investigation level numbers in the middle column provide a guide to which rows are needed for
which level of investigation. (i.e. for a Level 1 - Concise investigation you only need rows which have the
number 1 in the Level column)
3. Write your investigation report in the right hand column
Delete examples (in green), and refer to summary guidance in the left hand column as you go. For
detailed guidance refer to the NPSAs Guide to RCA investigation report writing.
If an investigation produces no information against a heading, add an explanation on why this is the
case.
If issues arise which require a new heading this can be added as a new row
4. On completion, delete the guidance to produce your final report
Delete all guidance both here and in the template below (i.e. all green and red type, all green
coloured rows and all green coloured columns)
Realign the remaining table containing your own report, so that it fits the whole page.
Save the document with the chosen file name for each individual investigation report.

These are the most fundamental underlying


factors contributing to the incident that can
be addressed. Root causes should be
meaningful, (not sound bites such as
communication failure) and there should be
a clear link, by analysis, between root
CAUSE and EFFECT on the patient.

Lessons learned (numbered)

1. When adding or updating patient assessments and care


plans, risk assessment of the wider implications of their use
should be conducted and acted upon to reduce the risk of
impact on patient safety
