Inpatient patient safety events in vulnerable populations: a retrospective cohort study

Schulson LB, Novack V, Folcarelli PH, et al. BMJ Qual Saf. 2020;Epub Oct 28.

This single-site retrospective cohort found that vulnerable populations (defined by race/ethnicity, insurance status, and limited English proficiency) were generally not at increased risk of patient safety events. However, stratified analyses comparing events identified via automated versus voluntary incident reporting systems found voluntary systems may undercount events in some racial/ethnic populations.
