Home services incident selection

Did the incident occur in connection with the provision of care and services?
For example, did the incident (actual, suspected or alleged):
  • occur while care and services are being provided
  • arise out of the failure to provide care and services, or
  • not occur during delivery of care and services but is connected because harm (or potential harm) arose from the provision of care and services

Not reportable

Based on the information you have provided it appears that your incident is not a reportable incident under the SIRS.

However this incident, like all incidents, should be managed using your service’s Incident Management System, or IMS.

It is important that your IMS is able to record incidents in a way that allows you to identify patterns of incidents that may reflect an ongoing risk or systemic issue.

For more information, please refer to the Effective incident management systems: Best practice Guidance.
