There are three mutually exclusive types of patient safety concerns.
An incident is a patient safety concern that reaches the patient, whether or not the patient suffers harm from the incident.
A near miss is a patient safety concern that does not reach the patient.
Incidents and near misses are also referred to as patient safety events.
An unsafe condition, the third type of patient safety concern, is a circumstance that increases the probability that a patient safety event will occur; an unsafe condition is not referred to as a patient safety event.
