Practice gaps in patient safety among dermatology residents and their teachers: a survey study of dermatology residents.

Swary JH; Stratman EJ.

This survey of dermatology residents found that almost half failed to report occupational needle-stick exposures, and the vast majority routinely copied and pasted information from prior documentation without verifying its accuracy. Specimen mishandling was extremely common. These findings raise concerns about safety culture in dermatology.
