Medical complications in hospitalized children: The Canadian Paediatric Adverse Events Study
Date:8/1/2012

More children experience complications or unintended injuries, especially related to surgery, in academic hospitals compared with community hospitals, but adverse events in the former are less likely to be preventable, according to the Canadian Paediatric Adverse Events Study published in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal) (pre-embargo link only) http://www.cmaj.ca/site/press/cmaj112153.pdf.

Children are especially vulnerable to harms associated with medical care, such as medication errors, surgical complications and diagnostic errors.

A team of Canadian researchers undertook the Canadian Paediatric Adverse Events Study to determine the frequency, type, severity and preventability of harmful events in children in academic pediatric centres compared with those in community hospitals in Canada. They looked at medical charts of 3669 children admitted to hospital from April 2008 to March 2009 at 8 academic pediatric centres and 14 community hospitals in 7 provinces.

They found that 11.2% of children in academic centres had adverse events compared with 3.3% in community hospitals. The events occurring in academic hospitals were more likely to be non-preventable than those in community hospitals. Adverse events were highest in surgical patients (35.1%), followed by medical patients (29.8%) and ICU patients (13.3%). Emergency and maternal/obstetric adverse events were more common in community hospitals while surgical and ICU events were more frequent in academic centres.

The higher rate of adverse events for children in teaching hospitals has been previously reported. The authors suggest it may be because there are more patients in these centres with complex illnesses, more caregivers and more handoffs between caregivers, health care trainees and other factors.

"We found a predominance of adverse events related to surgery," writes Dr. Anne Matlow, f
