We have introduced the surgical checklist to our treatment registration flow. By adding this tool, Clinicminds supports clinics performing (outpatient) surgical procedures.
This internationally used checklist identifies three phases of an operation, each corresponding to a specific period in the normal flow of work:
– Before the induction of anaesthesia (“sign in”)
– Before the incision of the skin (“time out”)
– Before the patient leaves the operating room (“sign out”).
