Healthcare errors represent the seventh leading cause of death in this country and are largely the result of systems errors as opposed to individual incompetence. In order to correct systems errors, it is essential that known adverse events b e reported so that the underlying causes can be determined and corrective action taken. However, despite their importance, the majority of known errors are not reported. This article describes the barriers to reporting errors and offers several recommendations to increase reporting of adverse events and, thus, improve the quality of healthcare.
