The Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act (PSQIA) provides federal protection of adverse event reports voluntarily submitted to patient safety organizations in an effort to enable disclosure and subsequent discussion of error to enhance learning from errors. This case tested the ability of the federal law to block access to such reports when conflicting with state laws in Florida. The court found that PSQIA provided appropriate protection for the records.
