Patient Safety Tool: Ensuring Safe, Correct Surgery Poster

The National Center for Patient Safety offers a free, downloadable poster outlining steps to help ensure correct surgery.

The poster details five steps healthcare providers should take before the surgery, just before the patient enters the operating room and immediately prior to surgery. The five steps are intended to prevent wrong site/side surgery or wrong procedures on the wrong patient.
