    Article - En anglais

    Complications in trauma care occur because of provider-related or patient disease-related events.

    Strictly defined standardized definitions of both types of complications are needed to develop strategies for problem resolution.

    The frequency and characteristics of 135 disease-related and provider-related complications were examined for a 3-year period in a level I university trauma service in all patients meeting Major Trauma Outcome Study (MTOS) criteria.

    Provider-related complications were analyzed for recurrent process errors to be targeted for corrective action.

    Complication events occurred in 2764 of 3327 patients, with provider-related complications in 759.

    Twenty-three percent (175) of complications were judged unjustified and 16 patterns of recurrent process-of-care errors were identified.
