RESIDENT REPORTING OF CRITICAL INCIDENTS

Residents are to report ALL incidents of violence or threats of violence directed towards them from patients, no matter how trivial, as well as ALL suicides or serious suicide attempts by patients. These critical incidents should be reported to the Chief Resident within 24 hours, in person or by voice mail. In addition, all such events should be reported to the responsible attending immediately.
  2. The Chief Resident will inform the Assistant Training Director for the site and the Training Director
  3. The Assistant Training Director will speak with the resident (for minor instances this may be delegated to the Chief Resident) and will be responsible for seeing that adequate psychological support and supervision are provided.
  4. Residents will be oriented to the reporting policy upon entering the program and reminded at regular intervals to report critical incidents.
  5. The Residency Training Office will maintain statistics and report them regularly to the resident group. The Training Office will also identify any patterns involved in these incidents so that these can be addressed.
