Canterbury DHB Serious Adverse Events Report 2019/20

Each year DHBs are required to release information relating to serious adverse events that have occurred within their hospitals. A serious adverse event (SAE) is one that has resulted in significant additional treatment, major loss of function, is life-threatening or has led to an unexpected death.

The DHB is required to review these events and report them to the Health, Quality & Safety Commission. The Commission then collates this information and it is published on their website

A media release about this 2019/20 Serious Adverse Events Report is also available in our health news section.
