Research has shown that the effectiveness of surgical safety checklists in improving patient outcomes is mixed and may depend in part on implementation as well as providers' attitudes toward the importance of such checklists. In this survey study involving pediatric surgeons, 94% reported using surgical safety checklists but just 55% reported that they perceived such checklists to improve safety.
