Keys to introducing the checklist

Monitoring the checklist at your hospital

The call series

Your involvement in checklist implementation

Next steps

Safe Surgery 2015: South Carolina

By the end of 2013 every patient undergoing surgery in the state will have a modified version of the checklist used during their operation.

the checklist
The Checklist

How many of you know the background of the WHO Surgical Safety Checklist?

How many of you are using a modified version of the checklist at your hospital?

How many of you tried using the checklist at your hospital, but weren’t able to get others to do it?

ceo participation
CEO Participation

We asked your CEO to do the following:

Engage Executive Leadership

Gain the endorsement of the Hospital Board and Medical Executive Committee

Meet with clinical leadership to ensure that they are committed to working on this project

Identify individuals that will serve as the checklist implementation team in collaboration with clinical leadership

make an implementation team
Make an Implementation Team

Nursing

Administration

Anesthesia

Surgery

find clinical champions
Find Clinical Champions

The nurses will know

Pick those who are respected and who will be supportive

The support of “formal” leadership is absolutely necessary but those leaders are often not the ones who should guide this effort directly

start small make mistakes small
Start Small – Make Mistakes Small

Only expand when you are ready

Do not tie yourself to a firm timeline – be flexible

Keep pressure on yourself to move forward but remember . . . .no preconceived plan ever survives contact with reality

preparation is everything
Preparation is Everything

Careful preparation is much easier than repairing the damage of moving too quickly

modify and trial the checklist
Modify and Trial the Checklist

Modify the checklist (Tips on next slide)

Practice using the checklist outside of the OR and modify as needed

Use the modified checklist in one case with one enthusiastic team

  • Each team member should be engaged and briefed ahead of time – make sure you talk to everybody

Debrief and modify the checklist as needed

Use the checklist for one day in every case with the same team

Debrief and modify as necessary

modification tips the basics
Modification Tips – The Basics
  • One size doesn’t fit all
  • Can create buy-in
  • Remove items that are adequately checked and measured by established safety systems
  • Don’t remove teamwork items:
    • Introduction of team members by name and role
    • All items in the briefing and debriefing sections
focused
Focused

Avoid adding too many items:

  • Each section should have 5-9 items
  • Only add items that are not adequately checked by other mechanisms
slide17

Brief

Each section should take < 1 minute

The checklist should never take longer than the procedure

the goal is two fold
The Goal is Two-Fold

To improve the performance of processes in the OR that every patient should have done

To improve communication and teamwork in the OR

slide21

"

“Will everyone please state name and role?”

"Confirm all team members have introduced themselves by name and role”

"We'll start by introducing ourselves and our roles”

"Team members introduced themselves by name and role"

"Confirm all team members have been introduced and actively participate"

slide22
Surgeon says: “If anyone on the team sees something that the team should know about, please speak up”

Surgeon declares: “If anyone on the team sees something that the team should know about, please speak up anytime during the procedure

Surgeon states,“ Remember that all are free to voice any concerns at any time throughout the procedure”

Surgeon states, “If you see, suspect, or feel that patient care is compromised, will you speak up?”

Surgeon states, “Remember that all are free to voice any concerns at any time throughout the procedure”

Surgeon states, “Does anyone have concerns? If you think there is a problem, please speak up”

slide23

When We Use the Checklist:

Does the entire team stop all activity at the three critical points in care?

Does the team verbally confirm each item on the checklist?

Are the items verified without reliance on memory?

Does the checklist promote teamwork?

slide24
This is Not a Quality Improvement Effort That Can Be Meaningfully Accomplished By the Nursing Staff Alone

Avoid the temptation to take the easy way out

A checklist that becomes a tick box exercise is no checklist at all

Do not count on an “IT” system or electronic documentation to make this effort a success

educate educate educate
Educate. . .Educate. . .Educate

In a “team”

Everyone separately

everyone gets personal contact
“Everyone” Gets Personal Contact

Mass emails do not suffice

Talk to people

  • Peer to Peer
  • Nurse to Physician

Do you have a good enough relationship to have this discussion?

“Everyone” includes:

  • Anesthesiologists, CRNAs, Nurses, Scrubs, Surgeons, and techs

Use a script to guide the discussion

make a video
Make A Video

Film it in an empty OR

Use someone's flipcam or camcorder

Many videos are available online, but one from your own place has the most impact

train and use coaches
Train and Use Coaches

Same people can do observations

Trusted and respected

Best if known by most

start where it s easiest
Start Where It’s Easiest

Use this rule at the beginning and all the way through

Start with the “willing”

Don’t try to fix problem staff and clinicians

collect stories
Collect Stories

Share stories when you educate

Post the stories in a prominent shared space

An “IHI” story

advertise
Advertise

You cannot spread the word too much

Support from the highest places is valuable

Support from respected clinicians is essential
