Abstract

These standards for critical incident management in critical care aim to focus on the specific needs of critical care while covering the wider NHS reporting and management systems. Incident reporting is now widespread amongst intensive care units in keeping with trends in high-risk industries. The purpose of incident reporting is to learn from the incident to improve safety.
