    Background: Incident reporting systems are being implemented throughout the world to record safety incidents in healthcare. The quality of the recording and analysis of reporting systems is important for the development of safety promotion measures. Methods: To assess the reliability of incident reporting ratings collected in a hospital setting, a three level interrater comparison was undertaken. The routine ratings of the frontline event handlers responsible for evaluating safety incident reports (n=495) were compared with the parallel ratings of two trained patient safety coordinators. The two patient safety coordinators then each separately reviewed about half of the 495 reports, followed by reclassification of a random sample (a random data subset of 60 reports) previously reclassified by the other coordinator during the first reclassifi..
