OAR 325-010-0025
Reporting Serious Adverse Events


The Commission will provide an Event Report form to be used by Hospital Participants for reporting Reportable Serious Adverse Events. The Event Report will include: a summary description of the event; an overview of the Hospital Participant’s complete, thorough and credible root cause analysis for that event; information about plans to implement improvements to reduce risk. The meaning of terms “complete,” “thorough,” and “credible” are explained in OAR 325-010-0035 (Commission Review of Reports).


Hospital Participants must use the Event Report form when reporting Serious Adverse Events to the Commission.


Hospital Participants must submit a completed Event Report to the Commission within 45 calendar days of discovery of a Reportable Serious Adverse Event.


If a Hospital Participant believes the Commission should immediately issue an alert to all Oregon hospitals based on a specific Reportable Serious Adverse Event, the Hospital Participant should provide an initial report to the Commission within 3 business days of discovery of the event, or sooner. The Hospital Participant and Commission will work together to identify information to include in the alert.
