Reports | Published: 13 Nov 2020

The National Diabetes Inpatient Audit – Harms (NaDIA-Harms) which is part of the National Diabetes Audit (NDA) programme is a continuous data collection to record serious inpatient events referred to as ‘harms’ that occur due to errors of inpatient diabetes management. The objective of NaDIA-Harms is to help reduce the rates of serious inpatient harms by providing hospitals with a system of case-mix adjusted benchmarked measurements. This report covers NaDIA-Harms data collected between May 2018 and October 2019.

NaDIA-Harms aims to monitor, and in time help reduce, instances of four life-threatening diabetes specific inpatient harms:

  • Hypoglycaemic rescue
  • Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA)
  • Hyperosmolar hyperglycaemic state (HHS
  • Diabetic foot ulcer

This report includes: participation to date; the number of submissions of each inpatient harm; the estimated case ascertainment of each inpatient harm; and the patient profiles of people that experience each inpatient harm. The patient profiles include demographics, diabetes characteristics, treatment targets, care processes, admission characteristics and comorbidities.
