Though medical errors are common in pediatric patients, to date few studies have examined pediatricians' attitudes toward errors. This AHRQ-funded study surveyed pediatric residents and attending physicians regarding their experiences with reporting medical errors. The majority of physicians had direct experience with errors and supported disclosing errors to patients and their parents, but only a minority had disclosed a serious error. Respondents expressed dissatisfaction with current means of reporting errors (eg, incident reporting systems) and expressed a desire for formal training in error disclosure. These findings are similar to those previously reported in physicians caring for adult patients.
