The CEC reviews incidents within the NSW Health system in support of patient safety and quality care.
Safety Alert Broadcast System (SABS)
SABS has been developed to provide a systematic approach to the distribution and management of patient safety information to the NSW health system. A safety alert quickly disseminates information to NSW local health district/specialty health networks about a safety matter needing immediate attention and action. A safety notice informs NSW local health district/specialty health networks about potential quality and safety issues requiring risk assessment at the local level.
