Incidence of Adverse Events in Indian Health Service Hospitals
The Indian Health Service (IHS) operates 26 hospitals that provide free inpatient care to eligible American Indians and Alaska Natives. Many of these hospitals are located in remote areas and have low average daily patient censuses. We will identify adverse and temporary harm events at IHS hospitals in FY 2017. We will estimate the incidence and preventability of these events by reviewing medical records associated with a sample of inpatient stays in IHS hospitals. We will also assess the extent to which IHS hospitals recorded these events in their incident reporting systems.
