According to an article published recently on the New England Journal of Medicine website "...checklist use was associated with significant improvement in the management of operating-room crises. These findings suggest that checklists for use during operating-room crises have the potential to improve surgical care."
The study was simulation
based and a total of 17 operating-room teams participated in 106
simulated surgical-crisis scenarios. Operating-room teams from three
institutions (one academic medical center and two community hospitals)
The authors included three General Surgeons, two
Anesthesiologists, a Neurosurgeon, a Hematologist/Oncologist, a
Diagnostic Radiologist and an Emergency Medicine Specialist. The study
was funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
