Surgery Checklist Found to Greatly Reduce Surgical Errors and Unnecessary Injuries and Deaths

An international pilot program that introduced a Surgical Patient Safety Checklist in eight hospitals in eight cities around the world resulted in nearly one third fewer deaths and complications among a diverse adult patient population undergoing non-cardiac surgery.

The findings were written up in the January 14, 2009 online edition of the New England Journal of Medicine.
