Preventable Adverse Events result in unintended harm to patients in healthcare facilities.  These events occur by an act of commission or omission rather than by the underlying disease or condition of each patient.  Improving patient safety is a primary focus for healthcare facilities in Texas and across the United States.
Senate Bill 203 amended the Health and Safety Code, Chapter 98, during the 81st Legislature (2009) to require: Healthcare facilities to report certain preventable adverse events to the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), and that DSHS make this data available to the public by facility, by type, and by number.
