Safety Checklist for Office Surgery Development

 

ISOBS has developed a template for a safety checklist to be used in an office where procedures are being performed, based on the work of the World Health Organization (W.H.O.). This template can be customized to meet the needs of the specific subspecialty and office setting. The checklist is available from ISOBS upon request.

Patient’s Checklist for Office-Based ProceduresOur latest innovation in improving patient safety is the ISOBS Patient Safety Checklist designed to empower the patient with the knowledge needed to make educated decisions about the provider and the office facility. This checklist enables the patient to ask the “right” questions about their provider’s qualifications, facility credentialing, recovery and emergency planning. This checklist, which can be customized, is available from ISOBS upon request. (Clicking on the checklist will open a larger version in a new browser window)

 

ISOBS Customizing the Office Surgical Checklist

ISOBS is currently collaborating with various proceduralists and surgeons to help them customize the safety checklist to reflect their specific practices. We are developing proprietary software that can create customized checklists on demand. We welcome inquiries and collaboration to further develop this exciting new initiative.
