Surgical safety checklists have been credited with improving perioperative patient outcomes, but numerous studies have shown implementation to be variable across settings and surgical specialties.

Item completion and fidelity improved after reimplementation and exploratory analysis suggests improved patient outcomes (e.g., serious complications).
