Patients with communication disabilities, such as impaired hearing or speech, are at risk for adverse events while hospitalized, as discussed in a prior WebM&M commentary. This literature review found a need for further studies of patient safety and communication disabilities with more specific information about the nature, timing, contributing factors, and consequences of adverse events. Prospective and standardized data collection is required to address this high-risk population.
