ISMP has joined with ECRI to form a new Patient Safety Organization: ECRI and the Institute for Safe Medication Practices PSO. You may prefer to report an adverse vaccine event to the new joint ECRI and the ISMP PSO. As a PSO, federal legal protection can be provided for certain patient safety information prepared within your patient safety evaluation system and submitted to ECRI and the ISMP PSO. The protected information, called patient safety work product, includes information you provide about why the error happened or why the hazard exists, along with any further analysis of the event provided back to you. The basic facts, whether written or observed, regarding what happened along with the patient’s medical/health records, are NOT considered patient safety work product and cannot be provided with federal protection in the event of a lawsuit. However, contextually identifiable information will NOT be disclosed unless we are legally compelled to do so.
