This prospective study used a trigger tool approach to identify potential adverse events among hospitalized patients in real time. Researchers found widely varying adverse rates among the five hospitals and concluded that event detection among the trigger event reviewers was responsible for some of the variation in observed events. These results underscore the challenge of accurate adverse event surveillance.
