Implementation of a surgical safety checklist and postoperative outcomes: a prospective randomized controlled study.

This randomized control trial showed reductions in complications and improved mortality with use of the WHO surgical safety checklist in India, consistent with results from earlier studies. Within the checklist group, investigators found fewer complications when the checklist was complete, compared to cases with incomplete checklists. This adds evidence to the recent studies of checklists that reflect insufficient implementation.
