Never Events are incidents which are considered unacceptable and eminently preventable. The Safer Care Committee has prepared a guide which highlights Never Events that could occur within your Emergency Department. It proposes examples of how to mitigate the risk of these happening and relevant NPSA Alerts and resources.
