Organizational cultures encouraging psychological safety can increase safe healthcare practices such as error reporting. This narrative review identified several organizational factors that promote psychological safety and error reporting (e.g., leadership support, nonpunitive and fair blame cultures, and continuous improvement processes) as well as organizational factors that serve as barriers to reporting (e.g., blame culture, poor communication, burnout, leadership resistance to change).
