This article was originally published in Clinica
A survey of the reporting culture in NHS Scotland appears to show significant adherence to policy, but that the system needs to be improved. A report published today by NHS Quality Improvement Scotland, based on a survey of some 13,000 members of staff, calls for action in four key areas, including: improving the actual reporting systems; the need to raise awareness of the importance of reporting incidents and near misses; and that more be done to ensure corrective action is taken. A working group has been established to address these issues.
