iBID Causation Form

The iBID Causation tab provides background information about the cause of the injury, to include the date and time of the injury and what the patient was doing at the time. We can also record any associated and/or contributory factors of the burn injury or episode such as drink, drugs and mental state.

Within the form fields those with two red stars next to them are Key Performance Indicator (KPI) required fields, fields with one grey star next to them are important and must be filled in wherever possible. These fields form part of the analysis process.

Causation Fields

Causation

Date of injury:- Pick from a drop down list or free type the date in to the date field. Failure to insert a date will generate a validation error and will make analysis of the record difficult and without this information will be unable to populate the field Days Post Injury. If the date is not known it can be filled in when the information becomes available.

Time of injury:- Can be picked from scroll down list or free typed in to the data field. Failure to insert a time will generate a validation error and will make analysis of the record difficult. Also, without the time of injury the field Days Post Injury will remain blank. The reason for this is that the Days Post Injury is a calculated field meaning it takes data from other date and time fields. If the time is not available it can be inserted at a later date.

On the basis of data items collected by the fire service, it is possible to derive the location of fire, most likely cause, source of ignition, spread of fire, method of fire-fighting, time and day of call to brigade, risk to life, rescue information, the details of casualties and many other variables.
