The Kansas Legislature enacted legislation in 1986 that requires licensed medical care facilities to establish and implement internal risk management programs, such as incident reporting systems, as a condition of licensure. Facilities are required to report specific information on internal incidents that, based on the determination of the facility’s risk management committee, qualify as Standard of Care III incidents (standard of care did not meet determinations, with injury occurring of reasonably probable) and Standard of Care IV incidents (possible grounds for disciplinary action by the appropriate licensing agency).
