(significant)
Broken bones
Kept in hospital.

Final Rating
1 = Rare (no risk)
Note:

When calculating the likelihood of an accident/incident occurring the frequency that the task is carried out must be
taken into consideration e.g. If a manual handling task is carried out every day the likelihood of an accident
occurring is greater than if the same task is carried out once a month.

<8 (Low to Moderate) All risk assessments must be retained and monitored at ward/department level

8 but <15 Risk assessments must be entered on the Care Group/Directorate risk register, and an action plan agreed
to minimise the risk. This action plan must be monitored by the Care Group/Directorate Governance arrangements.

15> (Extreme) Risk assessments must be entered on the Care Group/Directorate risk register and the action plan
must be discussed at the management team meeting. If the risk cannot be reduced to below 15, or cannot be
controlled within the Care Group/Directorate, it is to be forwarded to the Head of Corporate Affairs for inclusion on
the agenda of the Risk Management Board, where it will be considered for entry onto the Corporate Risk Register.
