Consultation on HSE Draft National Incident Management Policy and Procedures - June 2012

In a short submission to the HSE on the Draft Incident Management Policy and Procedures, the IMO recommended that:

  • In addition to developing an Incident Management Policy there is a need to develop a Risk Management Policy and assure that systems are in place that prevent error and incidents that lead to harm rather than focussing on apportioning blame when errors occur.
  • The procedures in relation to assessments of competence need to be aligned with the Medical Council Performance Review process.
  • Clarity on principles and/or procedures for remediation  is required to build confidence in the incident management process.
  • Issues in relation to indemnity  need to be clarified.
