The adverse event study is the first part of the Dutch national research program on patient safety. The main parts of the program are: (1a) a retrospective epidemiological study in 21 hospitals into the character, severity, extent and costs of adverse events during hospitalization and the resulting harm to patients, (1b) a retrospective epidemiological study of adverse events during day-care in these hospitals, and (1c) a comparison between the adverse events of the record study, the incident reported by professionals and the complaints reported by patients.
