Study: Pediatricians Admit Errors Half The Time

Posted by Frank Spector | Nov 19, 2008 | 0 Comments

A new study suggests that pediatricians are likely to disclose medical errors to the families of children under their care only about half the time and are more likely to do so if the error is obvious to parents. According to the study, published in the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, 53 percent of pediatricians surveyed said they would disclose errors regardless of circumstance. However, twice as many doctors responded that they would be more likely to offer disclosure if the error was obvious. The findings of the study closely matched results found in surveys of other medical specialties, according to the author of the research. US News and World Report
