Abstract: Incident reporting has long been viewed as a way to identify and quantify medical errors and adverse events, with the intention of trying to understand why these events occur. Patient and staff safety is integral to quality health care and health care facilities are becoming more aware of the need to establish a culture of safety as a key element in improving safety. Improving the culture of safety begins with assessing the current culture. This study sought to identify factors influencing perioperative staff in a health service district in Queensland, Australia, to report safety concerns and near miss events.
