Surgical Quality & Patient Safety

Surgical Safety Checklist

UCLA Health System has joined the Best Practices for Better Care (BPBC) national collaborative to improve surgical safety. Sponsored by the University Health Consortium (UHC) and the American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC), this collaborative will assist us in developing an improved surgical safety checklist. During monthly conference calls collaborative participants (65 hospitals and health systems, and 80 medical schools) will report progress and share information with colleagues from Academic Medical Centers across the country. UCLA has comprised a team of Surgeons, Proceduralists, Anesthesiologists, and Registered Nurses who represent departments across the Health System to revise our surgical safety checklist.
