Initial incident reports comprise the first of two forms that need to be completed when recording and following-up on an incident. They are designed for the purposes of recording basic incident information, and are meant for use by general staff.
To enter a new initial incident report, please complete the following steps from the AWARDS Home screen:
TIP: The Include selection option is only available when forms created in the FormBuilder have been set to display in incident reports for the selected program.
Printing the Initial Report - Click Printable Form. A printable version of the initial report is displayed and the browser's print options may be used to print it.
Updating the Initial Report - Click DATA ENTRY at the bottom of the page. The Incident Draft Form page is displayed.
NOTE: For instructions on making updates to the initial incident report at a later time, see Updating an Initial Incident Report.
Locking / Filing the Initial Report - Click DATA ENTRY. The Incident Draft Form page is displayed. If no more information needs to be added to this report, click LOCK/FILE REPORT. The initial report is locked from further changes and is filed for review by members of the incident review committee. A read-only report version of the initial report is also displayed.
NOTE: For instructions on locking/filing the initial incident report at a later time, see Updating an Initial Incident Report.
The process of entering an initial report is now complete.
