Patient Safety

What is the purpose of the Critical Incident Review Committee?

The Critical Incident Review Committee (CIRC) will conduct a system safety review. Simply put, the goal is to improve the health-care system and make it safer. The Critical Incident Review will:

  • Review the event
  • Identify problems or contributing factors
  • Examine the system more broadly and consider how it may contribute to incidents when they happen and how to make changes to prevent their recurrence.

CIRC may make recommendations for change in these areas - the goal being prevention of future harm and system process improvement. The review’s purpose is not to assign blame to an individual health care provider.
