To better understand patient safety issues of marginalized groups, this scoping review assessed 67 articles primarily focusing on four patient groups: ethnic minorities, frail elderly, care home residents and those with low socioeconomic status. A variety of patient safety issues were identified, and half of the included studies looked at either medication safety, adverse outcomes, and near misses. This review highlights the need for additional research to understand the intersection between marginalization and the multi-dimensional nature of patient safety issues.
