The patient reporting and action for a safe environment (PRASE) intervention: a feasibility study.

O'Hara JK, Lawton RJ, Armitage G, et al. BMC health services research. 2016;16:676.

The role of patients in promoting their own safety remains controversial. Although some studies have shown that patients are able to identify errors not detected via other means, others have shown that patients may conflate service quality with safety issues. In this feasibility study, authors describe the development and testing of an intervention designed to collect feedback from hospitalized patients about the safety of their care.
