The nurse fills out an incident report after a patient received the wrong blood transfusion. What should the nurse do next?

Withhold the incident report from the patient's medical record


•The incident report is an internal document for the hospital and should not be mentioned in the medical record, nor should a copy be made for the patient's record.

•The incident report is for the institution's own records to help improve policies and procedures.

•The patient should already be stable before the nurse fills out an incident report.
