Opportunity statement l.jpg

Opportunity Statement

There is an opportunity at LUHS to assure compliance with the 2004 National Patient Safety Goal of Universal Protocol for preventing wrong site, wrong procedure and wrong patient surgery.

Project goal: Improve the documentation rates for compliance with proper consents, site verification and time out procedures.


Most likely causes identified l.jpg

Most Likely Causes Identified

  • Lack of tool to monitor compliance with protocol

  • Misinterpretation of completion of form

  • Lack of understanding of:

    • Universal Protocol

    • Which Surgeries/procedures are included in protocol

    • Which surgeries/procedures require site marking

    • Number of personnel required for a “time-out”


Solutions implemented l.jpg

Solutions Implemented

  • Site Verification checklist created November 2003.

  • Form revised twice during data collection period 4th quarter 2003-4th quarter 2004 due to feedback from key stakeholders.

  • Education sessions for key stakeholders

  • Invasive Procedure List (in-patient and out-patient) developed June 2004

  • Random sampling of verification checklists performed quarterly: 4th quarter 2003-4th quarter 2004

  • Quarterly reports to involved departments
