Maine

Maine has established a system for reporting sentinel events for the purpose of improving the quality of health care and increasing patient safety.  Within one day of the occurrence of a sentinel event, facilities must call at Sentinel Event Hot Line.  Additional analysis and reporting follows the oral report.
