Improving Patient Safety by Using Checklists

An interesting study funded by AHRQ. Here is the AHRQ press release, January 16, 2013; Standard Written Checklists Can Improve Patient Safety During Surgical Crises <>.
“It has been found that when doctors, nurses and other hospital operating room staff follow a written safety checklist to respond when a patient experiences cardiac arrest, severe allergic reaction, bleeding followed by an irregular heart beat or other crisis during surgery, they are nearly 75 percent less likely to miss a critical clinical step, according to a new study funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)”.
