Serious incident reporting

Serious Incidents relating to services funded by Department of Communities for disability supports, are required to be reported by the head of the funded service who must ensure that the matter is reported to the Department of Communities using the Department's Notification of Serious Incident reporting system.

There are guidelines that define a serious incident and why it must be documented and reported. The guidelines also provide an introduction to serious incident reporting, when to complete a serious incident report, what to do in the event of a serious incident, who to contact and tips on how to complete the serious incident form.
