Dr. Shojania: Stop Root Cause Analysis Questions
Many incidents, even if important (e.g., common adverse drug events, patient falls, decubiti) do not warrant investigation as isolated incidents. In such cases, the IR system should simply capture the incident and the extent of injury to the patient, not barrage users with a series of root cause analysis-style questions about the factors contributing to these events.
