MHS Patient Safety Professionals:

Reporting safety events and near misses in the Joint Patient Safety Reporting (JPSR) system is a critical component of patient safety. By tracking and studying these events, the Military Health System can proactively focus on the processes and systems that failed and make improvements. We can learn how to prevent recurrence and foster a culture of safety with comprehensive data.
Here are examples of events that should be reported in the JPSR:
--Tylenol 650 mg administered to the incorrect patient. The patient reported relief from his headache.
--An unlabeled blood specimen was sent to the lab. The specimen was recollected and results accurately reported two hours later.
--An IV pump was found with dried blood on the base. The pump had just been removed from the clean supply closet. The blood was cleaned prior to use for a patient.
