Description
 
Adverse events -- clinical incidents that may pose the risk of injury to a patient as the result of a medical intervention rather than the patients underlying health condition -- can occur in all health care delivery settings. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) medical centers (VAMCs) can use one or more of the protected (confidential and nonpunitive) and nonprotected processes to evaluate the role of individual providers in adverse events. This report reviewed the extent to which processes used to respond to adverse events are carried out across VAMCs. It examined (1) VAMCs adherence to VAs Veterans Health Admin.s (VVHAs) protected peer review process, and the extent to which VHA monitors this process; and (2) VAMCs adherence to VHAs nonprotected processes and the extent to which VHA monitors these processes. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
