Hospital and health care professionals in Korea strive to deliver the safest care possible. Nevertheless, medical errors are common, often preventable, and costly. Minimizing and eliminating medical errors is vital to improve patient safety and the quality of hospital care. Establishment of voluntary incident reporting system is potentially valuable sources of information about medical errors. Therefore the purpose of study is developing electronic incident reporting system mainly focused on nursing related task, and that is easily accessible, confidential, and intranet based system. The system collected data during 2005 fiscal year. However, comparing the rates of incident rates with other countries, our reporting system yielded much lower reporting rates of medical errors with considerable variation in reporting among health care professionals. Therefore, hospital should provide standardized education to all frontline staffs in order to minimize the variation in error reporting. By doing this, voluntary system can be used for systemwide improvements by analyzing data collected. Future studies should also examine the barriers to reporting and evaluate various strategies to enhance reporting.
