Abstract

Background: Never Events (NE) are serious clinical incidents that cause potentially avoidable harm and impose a significant financial burden on healthcare systems. The purpose of this study was to identify common Never Events.
Methods: We analysed the NHS England NE data from 2012-2020 to identify common Never Events category and themes.
Results: We identified 51 common NE themes in 4 main categories out of a total of 3247 NE reported during this period. Wrong-site surgery was the most common category (n=1307;40.25%) followed by Retained foreign-objects (n=901;27.75%); Wrong implant or prosthesis (n=425;13.09%); and Non-surgical/infrequent ones (n=614; 18.9%).
