Information for Healthcare Providers
The data entry system - Alerts
Users are currently alerted about potential hip size and knee side never events and this work has now been further developed in alignment with NJR's commitment to patient safety.
Two new alerts are now also being monitored, since 14th December 2018:
• Mismatches between the manufacturers of the femoral and tibial components selected in a single knee procedure.
• Mismatches between the manufacturers of the femoral stem and the femoral head selected in a single hip procedure.
The NJR recognises that there are certain combinations of components provided by different manufacturers which are valid and have received regulatory approval for use. NJR has developed an exclusion list and never event alerts will not be triggered for these implant combinations. This list will be maintained on an ongoing basis.
The healthcare provider pages in this section, also linked below, provide information on all aspects of the NJR for its implementation within hospitals:
