The Patient Safety Authority (PSA) is an independent state agency that collects reports of patient safety events from Pennsylvania healthcare facilities. Pennsylvania is the only state that requires acute care facilities to report all incidents of harm (serious events) or potential for harm (incidents). Long-term care facilities report infections into the Pennsylvania Patient Safety Reporting System (PA-PSRS). The PSA analyses those reports to prevent recurrence—either by identifying trends unapparent to a single facility or flagging a single event that has a high likelihood of recurrence— and disseminates that information through multiple channels.
Here is the PSA's 2022 Annual Report.
