COVID-19 related work is a risk management priority for the State Claims Agency. We continue to provide advice to and respond to queries from State authorities in respect of State indemnity and risk management relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We have conducted ongoing analysis of COVID-19 incidents reported on NIMS, the National Incident Management System, and provided regular reporting to the HSE to inform risk management strategies.
In line with our risk management mandate, we have issued a range of specific guidance documents (indemnity advices, risk advices and patient safety notifications) to State Authorities, both health and social care and non-health and social care.
Our risk management units continue to assess the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on State Authorities. These resources address some recurring themes arising in queries and analysis in order to help State Authorities learn rapidly from the incidents reported.
