Description of Change: Changed the Data Element Question from "Which of the following best describes the event?" to "Which of the following best characterizes the event?"
Go-To Logic: Refer to Common Formats Flow Charts
Guide For Use: Select 'Incorrect action (e.g., patient given blood of wrong ABO type)' only if the concern involved an incident or near miss.
An 'Adverse reaction during or following administration without any apparent incorrect action' may be an unwanted side effect, such as an unavoidable allergic reaction. It is not necessarily a patient safety event. In the absence of any identified incorrect action, the Blood or Blood Product Common Formats do not specify further inquiry regarding this type of occurrence at this time. If, in the future, an incorrect action or process failure becomes evident, inquiry may be resumed.
