This study analyzed Pediatric Quality Indicators (PDIs) to compare pediatric safety events before and during the COVID-19 pandemic. Results indicate an increased risk for overall PDIs, but only postoperative sepsis showed increased odds. Given the continuing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, and risk of future pandemics, more efforts are needed to ensure the safety of pediatric patients.
