Checklist for Surgeons

My clinical influence has crossed the ocean! I have always been obsessive about safety in the operating room. So, last year I published a pilot’s type checklist for surgeons to institute in their operating rooms in an effort to create an “error-free” zone. This paper was very well received in this country. But to my surprise and gratification, I was asked by the Minister of Health of France for permission to integrate the checklist into the entire French health care system! Needless to say, I responded with a resounding “yes!”. The Minister would like to have me visit in the future to speak about my experiences implementing this checklist in my operating room.
