Modifying the Safety Statement

Surgeon says: If anyone on the team sees something that the team should know about, please speak upSurgeon declares: If anyone on the team sees something that the team should know about, please speak up anytime during the procedure.Surgeon states, If you see, suspect, or feel that patient care is compromised, will you speak up?Surgeon states, Remember that all are free to voice any concerns at any time throughout the procedureSurgeon states, Does anyone have concerns? If you think there is a problem, please speak upWhen You Modify the Checklist with Your Implementation Team: Discuss each item on the checklist using the guidelines that we previously discussed.Ensure that the checklist follows your current flow in the OR.Add your hospital logo to the checklist.Say the words on the checklist aloud. Many times it looks good on paper and does not reflect what you would actually say during a case.

Examples of Modified ChecklistsSmall Scale Testing:Table-Top SimulationTable-Top SimulationIt is easy to test the checklist outside of the OR.It doesnt take a lot of time.You can learn a ton.Testing the checklist on a small scale can prevent you from making BIG mistakes.

The Checklist as a Document ToolPoll 3: The Checklist as a Documentation ToolHow many of you want to use the checklist as an auditing tool?When you discussed the checklist with your colleagues, did they have concerns about including the checklist in the medical record?If you are already using the checklist, do you keep it as part of the medical record?

Using the Checklist As a Documentation ToolSCIP MeasuresElectronic Medical RecordPatient ChartSignaturesMalpractice issuesSCIP MeasuresIt can be used to document SCIP Measures.Be careful to make certain that your documentation is consistent.Electronic Medical RecordThe checklist is compatible with the EMR.You want to avoid the checklist becoming a tick the box exercise.

Signatures at the BottomDepends on the culture of your hospital.Can be looked at as punitive.It is best to have the entire team to sign it if you are going to use signatures so that responsibility is shared.Patient ChartMany hospitals do not include it in the patient record.If you are going to put it in the chart to document make sure that the nurse isnt the only one using the checklist.Malpractice ConcernsWe will never know which patient the checklist helps because of information that was shared and problems that were prevented.
