The Surgical Safety Checklist is a one-page list of important patient safety processes / items that surgical teams discuss at three critical points in surgery with all team members present:
- The preoperative evaluation of the conscious patient prior to induction of anesthesia or “Briefing”.
- The time out immediately prior to incision or “Time Out”.
- The preparations for appropriate postoperative care prior to the patient leaving the operating room or “Debriefing”.
