2017-18 Serious Adverse Events Report

Today we released our Serious Adverse Events Report which outlines Auckland DHB’s Serious Adverse Events for the 2017-18 year. Serious Adverse events are events which generally result in significant harm to patients.

While we always work to provide the very best care for all our patients, risk is an inherent aspect of healthcare. Occasionally patients experience harm during the course of their treatment, and our practice is to be transparent about any such events so that patients and their families know what happened, and so that we can learn from these events and reduce the chances of them happening again.

You can download the report here [PDF, 550 KB] and also find it on our planning documents page.
