Prior research has shown low rates of voluntary safety event reporting by resident physicians. This hospital implemented a quality improvement (QI) project to increase reporting by pediatric residents. The QI team identified barriers to reporting (e.g., lack of awareness of the organization’s event reporting system, safety culture) and then implemented a multifactorial intervention to increase reporting. The number of reports submitted increased, as did the number of unique residents submitting reports.
