Healthcare systems worldwide have dedicated several years, special attention, and action toward improving safety for their patients. Although many innovative technological solutions have helped providers reduce medical errors, hospitalized patients lack access to these solutions, and face difficulties in having a proactive role in their safety. In this paper, we examine how patient-peer support can be a valuable resource for patients in the context of hospital safety. Through semi-structured interviews with 30 patients and caregivers at a pediatric and an adult hospital, we identify the potential benefits of incorporating patient-peer support into patient-facing technologies. Facilitating such support can provide patients with new avenues for engaging in, and improving, the quality and safety of their hospital care.
