Patients are increasingly encouraged to participate in preventing and reporting errors. This study evaluated three different methods for capturing safety concerns from patients: bedside interviews, a paper-based form, and a patient safety hotline. Face-to-face interviews generated more than twice as many concerns per patient compared with the other strategies.
