Utah

The State of Utah initiated its patient safety program through the use of two administrative rules.

R380-200, entitled the Patient Safety Sentinel Event Report, requires all licensed hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers to report the occurrence of sentinel events and the findings and action plans of the root cause analyses that follow.  R380-210, entitled the Health Care Facility Patient Safety Program, requires all licensed hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers to report on an annual basis through the UB92 HCFA administrative billing structure ICD9 coded adverse drug events.  Additionally this rule requires a once every three year independent audit of each facility’s adverse drug event reduction program.  Both of these administrative rules are authorized under Title 26-1-30(a), (b), (d), (e), and (g) and Section 26-3-8.
