CRITICAL INCIDENT REPORTING

CLBC defines “critical incidents” as serious or unusual events that involve an individual accessing CLBC-funded services that occur while service is being delivered (this includes staffed living and shared living at all times). Unlike other incidents that occur during service delivery, service providers must report critical incidents to CLBC.

When To Report to CLBC:

  • For urgent critical incidents that result in serious harm to an individual and/or require immediate action by CLBC or others:

    • Call CLBC immediately; and

    • Submit, by fax or email the critical incident report within 24 hours to the local CLBC office responsible for their contract, 

  • ​For non-urgent critical incidents that do not result in serious harm or require immediate action by CLBC or others, you are required to submit the report within 5 working days to the local CLBC office responsible for their contract.

How to Report:

  • Submissions via email must be sent to both the CLBC liaison analyst and the general mailbox for the local CLBC office (if applicable), and CC: safety@pandoraservicesbc.com as well, and your manager.
