Result was created  by accumulating the accident hierarchy frequency from the Body Injured Incident Data record of six months along with the Injured Body Parts Map data to find out which part could be harmed on what level. Then from the summarized contents , human factors of accident would be extracted using Human Factors Analysis and Classification System (HFACS) approach, dividing each accident into specific category. To see which factor caused what, the accident hierarchy and the factors will be correlated to form a new variable,  reveals what kind of causes that appears the most and brought what type accident in result. That step will then completed by adding injured parts to the the one got found. The result overview pointed at revelation of Skill-Based Error and Physical Environment as the dominant of factors that lead to Medical Treatment accidents during the period.
