Incident Reporting Policy
These are under review at the moment but I don't expect that much of the content will need to change. Just bringing it to the forefront. Especially for the members working in the NDIS space.
The risk Jedi and friends have updated the ‘Jeder Incident and injury Reporting Policy-Procedure’. There’s a copy saved on SharePoint here: Incident and Reporting Policy on SharePoint
Please take the time to familiarise yourselves with the policy and provide feedback here. The board will endorse the policy update after members have had an opportunity to provide then. Until then, please use this policy to guide you as needed.
The associated Incident Report Form can be found here: Incident form on SharePoint

Hi, I think this doc may need a little more work. eg lots of words in there that Jeder doesn't use, eg client, staff, employee.
I note Reference Number (administration logged into Echidna), where/how is this occurring?
First Aider Nam has 2 boxes next to it, are these to be ticked or are we listing a person's name?
Location: Team again has a box - should these be a place for text?
Heading - Date Time Description - should we add the words of Event?
Status of Injured Parties - seems to be a lot of space taken up with very few words - could we not incorporate this into Date/Time/Description of Event as a free text space?
Injured Party Details - again lots of space taken up that could be tidied up a little.
Details of Injury - Much of this information is already asked in the areas above?
Details listing action taken - can we put these in 2 columns to save a bit of space.
And lastly, not sure of the relevance of the last few questions, they seem a bit ambiguous, eg the health of the first aid responder? if they were knocked unconscious, if they had more than 2 days off work. I've not seen this kind of info in an incident form before, and if we're going to add these few things in there's probably a lot more that can be added.
Sorry for the long ramble, happy to clarify any of the above.

Would a Participants death need to be recorded on this Accident and Incident Form?
Aleks Jovanovic Mon 17 Aug 2020 12:54AM
Hi Meredith. I think that this would be a good document to record and notify of a participants death. Our position, our relationship, the circumstances and timing of the death may need an extended report to be attached.

I'd also add if the police were contacted particularly for legal reasons.

Introduction Film: Why is risk, incidents and complaints management important?
Animation: What role does your staff play in risk incidents and complaints management?
Animation: How to make your service better I attended an NDS training webinar on Risk Management yesterday (I believe some other members did too) I've attached 4 short videos which summarise our Risk management responsibilities and the benefits of good risk management practice. Oh, I left the session feeling that we have some really good systems in place already. We are good! In order to get better we need to all become a little more familiar with the systems and contribute to their improvement(s).

Thanks for sharing this resources. Great resources. This resource could be considered part of the induction essential training/resources???

This NDS link is considering additional risk - it might be worth checking it out.

Thanks for sharing Risk Incident and complaints videos Aleks! Yes it was great to realise that practices recommend at Risk we are already undertaking. We just need more involvement of members to follow Risk enablement. Cheers

@Aleks Jovanovic Sorry had no idea you were doing this as the P & P conversation has been happening on Loomio for a couple of weeks and this wasn't flagged. This policy/procedure was allocated to @Lorna McKenzie @Yvonne and Llewellyn, I guess they can cross it off their list.
