The total number of safety incidents, causing harm to children due to 'failure to monitor', reported to the National Reporting and Learning System (NRLS) by provider organisations.
Please note that this indicator has been retired as of May 2015. This is because it has been removed form the 2015/16 NHS Outcomes Framework due to the unsuitable data source and the unavailability of alternative data sources on which the indicator could be based. There were also some technical issues with the calculation methodology.
This indicator aims to measure the incidence of harm because of a ‘failure to monitor’. This includes (but is not limited to) failures of care such as ‘not taking observations’ for prolonged periods, no recognition of the early signs of deterioration and delays in patients receiving medical attention.
There will be no further updates for this indicator.
