Oakbrook Terrace, IL: Joint Commission Center for Transforming Health Care. Chicago, IL: American College of Surgeons. November 2012.
Some of the most prominent successes in the patient safety field have been achieved in preventing health care–associated infections. Sponsored by The Joint Commission Center for Transforming Healthcare and the American College of Surgeons, this effort used rigorous quality improvement methodology and a collaborative approach across seven participating hospitals to tackle the problem of surgical site infections (SSIs) in patients undergoing colorectal surgery. The project was a remarkable success, achieving a 32% reduction in SSIs during the study period. The Center for Transforming Healthcare is also sponsoring efforts to prevent wrong-site surgery and improve hand hygiene and handoff communications.

Nagpal K, Arora S, Abboudi M, et al. Ann Surg. 2010;252:171-176.
This qualitative study interviewed 18 providers and found that postoperative handovers are informal, unstructured, and fraught with inconsistent and incomplete information transfer. These data were used to develop and validate a formal handover protocol. Prior studies have used insights from Formula One auto racing to inform improvement strategies for postoperative handoffs, and the World Health Organization's Surgical Safety Checklist explicitly emphasizes structured handoffs at the time of patient transfer from the operating room to the postoperative area.
