1. VA hospital staff members will fill out a form describing the incident.
On a removable section, the person filing the report will include his or
her name and phone number.
2. An analyst at NASA's Ames Research Center with medical expertise
will read the report and call the filer if there are any additional questions.
The analyst will then remove the section that identifies the person and
input the information into a database.
3. Staff members will then mine the data for patterns and issue advisories.
