Abstract
People expect safe health care. Health care providers work hard every day to give safe, excellent care. Despite our best efforts to keep you safe, there are risks to being in the hospital. For example, a patient may fall, or get an infection or a pressure injury (bedsore), or be given the wrong dose of medication. These events are called patient safety incidents. This pamphlet explains what patient safety incidents are, what to do if you notice a patient safety incident, how patient safety incidents are reported, what disclosure is and how it will help you, and how disclosure takes place. A list of resources for further information is included. The French version of this pamphlet 1712, "Incidents liés à la sécurité des patients", is also available.
