America's Best Hospitals Way Ahead of World Health Organization on Surgical Checklist Use
Date:1/16/2009

als in the Memorial Healthcare System in Hollywood, FL says, "Not only have we made our hospitals much safer than they already were with our surgery checklists, our patients are more satisfied with their care and our physicians love working here because of our commitment to their patient's safety."

Other than safety, the most important benefit cited by healthcare leaders is the lower costs that come with better safety. By using checklists, administrators have discovered that staff make fewer costly mistakes, are less wasteful with medical supplies, and more efficient with their time. Says Dr. Marks, whose hospitals have used aviation-based checklists for three years, "Once we saw how our system began to run even more reliably and with fewer delays, we realized checklists were the right thing for our patients and the right thing to do for our bottom line."
