Complications Reporting

An important aspect of advocating for patient safety is appropriately reporting complications.  While this task is not always convenient or pleasant, it accomplishes many things:

ASDSA Complications Reporting Tool
ASDSA has recently introduced a complications reporting tool, which we hope our members will use to report your complications to us for our own internal tracking.  Please note that reporting your complications to the ASDSA does not represent a legal complaint nor does it go on the public record the same way that a complaint registered with a federal or state agency would.  We encourage you to report with those entities as well, if appropriate.

Patient Photo and Complications Reporting Release

Please have your patients fill out and sign this form for release of their complications report and any photographs.
