The Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch (HSIB) is launching a full investigation into a case involving a patient who deteriorated and died within 24 hours of presenting at hospital, two weeks after having had surgery. The focus of the investigation will be on understanding the contextual, organisational and human factors that are influential in determining the severity of a patient’s condition. The investigation will review strategies and identify opportunities to facilitate clinical decision making.
