Verifying patient identity and site of surgery: improving compliance with protocol by audit and feedback.
Garnerin P, Arès M, Huchet A, Clergue F. Qual Saf Health Care. 2008;17:454-458.
This study combined implementation of verification protocols with periodic audits and feedback to increase compliance with patient identification in the prevention of wrong-patient and wrong-site surgery. While the process did improve, the authors advocate for technological solutions to address the limitations of purely manual systems. A related commentary [see link below] discusses the broader context of efforts to eliminate wrong-site surgery.
