Description:
The purpose of this document is to help ensure that patients undergoing surgical procedures do so safely. By providing guidance for safe practice throughout the surgical patient pathway and introducing key safety steps that can be incorporated into the operating theatre routine, the most common and avoidable risks associated with surgical error can be minimised. These critical safety steps are intended to support the development of a safety culture for operating departments and teams and endorse the principles of the World Health Organisation (WHO) Surgical Safety Check list.
