Paediatric reports  

Paediatric cases comprise all reports for patients under 18 years of age, including all paediatric cases from the SHOT reporting-categories.

Paediatric reports are subdivided by recipient age group: neonates ≤28 days; infants >28 days and <1 year; children ≥1 year to <16 years and young people aged 16 to <18 years. 

Paediatric cumulative data page is now live and can be viewed via the tab below:

Near Misses 

Following a pilot study in 2009, SHOT re-started the collection and analysis of Near Miss (NM) reports in 2010. These NM reports now account for approximately 40% of all reports submitted to SHOT. Reporting and investigating near misses can help to identify and control risks before actual harm results, providing valuable opportunities to improve transfusion safety.
