The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) has issued a directive that as of October 1, 2011, all Ontario hospitals will be required to report all critical incidents related to medication / IV fluid through the National System for Incident Reporting (NSIR) within 30 days following the disclosure of the critical incident to either of the Medical Advisory Committee (MAC), administrator and/or patient.
This directive builds on the amendments to Regulation 965 under the Public Hospitals Act regarding reporting of critical incidents and the introduction of the Excellent Care for All Act, and is aimed at encouraging system learning and enabling quality improvement.
This conference is presented to you by the OHA together with the MOHLTC, Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), and ISMP Canada to assist hospitals with meeting the new obligations.
