A patient-centered safety culture requires that errors are disclosed to patients. This prospective cohort study simulated a medication overdose that resulted in an adverse event and observed how medical trainees and attending physicians disclosed the error. Disclosure technique was deficient even among the senior practitioners, highlighting the importance of training health care providers in communication.
