The seven safety markers that resulted from our Scoping Review: Medication mania; Home alone; A fixed agenda in a foreign language; Strangers in the home; The butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker; Out of pocket: the cost of caring at home; and My health for yours: declining caregiver health were mapped to the high-level classes of the ICPS. The findings mapped to three of the high-level classes: Contributing Factors/Hazards; Incident Characteristics; and Patient Outcomes as shown.
