Kan. Admin. Regs. § 28-52-4 - Standard-of-care determinations

(a) Each facility shall assure that analysis of patient care incidents complies with the definition of a "reportable incident" set forth at K.S.A. 65-4921. Each facility shall use categories to record its analysis of each incident, and those categories shall be in substantially the following form:
(1) Standards of care met;
(2) standards of care not met, but with no reasonable probability of causing injury;
(3) standards of care not met, with injury occurring or reasonably probable; or
(4) possible grounds for disciplinary action by the appropriate licensing agency.
(b) Each reported incident shall be assigned an appropriate standard-of-care determination under the jurisdiction of a designated risk management committee. Separate standard-of-care determinations shall be made for each involved provider and each clinical issue reasonably presented by the facts. Any incident determined by the designated risk management committee to meet category (a)(3) or (a)(4) shall be considered a "reportable incident" and reported to the appropriate licensing agency in accordance with K.S.A. 65-4923.
(c) Each standard-of-care determination shall be dated and signed by an appropriately credentialed clinician authorized to review patient care incidents on behalf of the designated committee. In those cases in which documented primary review by individual clinicians or subordinate committees does not occur, standard-of-care determinations shall be documented in the minutes of the designated committee on a case-specific basis. Standard-of-care determinations made by individual clinicians and subordinate committees shall be approved by the designated risk management committee on at least a statistical basis.
