Supplementary notes

Adverse and temporary harm events may include, but are not limited to, events related to medication change or misuse, events related to patient care or neglect, or events related to infection and improper infection control measures.
* Harm could have been avoided through improved assessment or alternative actions.
** Harm could not have been avoided given the complexity of the patient's condition or care required. As a result of rounding, subgroups for the ‘not preventable’ category do not total 51 percent.
