Patients with learning disabilities encounter unique patient safety threats. This qualitative study explored the care experiences and safety concerns of people with learning disabilities and their caregivers. Researchers identified several protective factors to avoid safety inequities and support safe, high-quality care, including access to social support and advocacy, appropriate staffing, sufficient expertise in care settings, care continuity, and accommodations of individualized care and communication needs.
