Falling from operating table

Freedom of information request details

FOI request date:

Service: Claims Management

The following information was requested:

I was wondering how would I go about finding out number of datix incidents raised from patients falling from operating table in the NHS.

I am a doctor and would like to see if I could write a paper on this topic to help create a conversation towards preventing this never event from happening.

Yes, I would like to get an overall picture for all of the trust that are members of the claims scheme. I am looking to get either claims relating to patient’s falling from bed or number of incidents that have been recorded via DATIX through Trusts.

My ideas is to find out number of incidents/claims over 5-10 years, type of injury to patient, patient demographics, which specialties involved, claims successful , changes implemented etc.
