You find out after surgery that the left knee was treated instead of the right one. Although such mistakes rarely happen, they can have serious consequences – both for the patient and the image of the physician and the hospital.

The Medical Center for Quality in Medicine (ÄZQ) in Germany now published nine surgical safety checklists that are meant to help avoid mix-ups with patients and interventions in the operating room. Daniela Renner, research associate at the ÄZQ, explains how these checklists originated and how they contribute to improving patient safety in hospitals.
