- Give us your views – Developing guidance for involvement in Serious Adverse Incidents (SAI’s) 28th February 2019 The Department of Health is currently seeking your views on the development of new guidance relating to the involvement of families in Serious Adverse Incident investigations in Health and Social Care. A Serious Adverse Incident is when something happens with someone’s treatment or care which could have or did lead to harm. That harm may be unexpected or unexplained and could lead to serious injury or death. Events which are reported as Serious Adverse Incidents (SAIs) help to identify learning even when it is not clear something went wrong with the treatment or care provided. The purpose of an SAI review is to understand what occurred and to share learning across the relevant services.
