How well is your organisation using the surgical safety checklist?
It is a simple process that saves lives by avoiding obvious mistakes, as well as an important tool to improve communication and teamwork.
The surgical safety checklist helps ensure the correct surgical procedures are carried out on the correct patient.
The importance of the checklist is not only that it is used, but that it is used in an engaged manner, by people who are focusing on the objectives of basic checks and improved communication.
If you are part of a theatre team, we would be grateful if you would take five minutes to complete this survey.
All entries go into the draw for a $100 restaurant voucher.
A national overview of survey results will be made available, and results from individual DHBs or private providers will be fed back to them through their reducing perioperative harm champion, but not shared with other providers.For more information download the flyer.
