Considerations include:Was the client hurt and is the client still at risk?Do you need to significantly change your service delivery to the client as a result (including police intervention)?7Incident Type and CategoryA descriptor or incident type is selected for each incident. Incidents are graded or categorised according to the actual impact or the potential risk. There are two categories. Category One Resulted in a serious outcome Category Two Serious threat to health, safetyand/or wellbeing of clients and others8Category One incidentsThese are the most serious incidents.All Category One incidents must be reported as soon as possible and at the latest within one working day.9Category Two incidentsA Category Two incident involves events that threaten client or others health, safety or well being. Must be reported as soon as possible and at the latest within two working days.10Example ScenariosExample AA disability client’s known health condition deteriorated and he was hospitalised on Monday. A phone call was received by the disability residential service that evening from the hospital to advise the client had died.Example BAn out of home care client discloses to you that she had been hit by her carer resulting in bruising.11Assessing need for a client incident reportProfessional judgement by a senior staff member is required.
