You mean they were doing it all this time without a checklist?!
Oh no no no no... we do have lists here in this country infact they are more than few pages long(which is a good thing). infact this new list wont even be a summary of those forms.
there are lists for equipment check( both for before and after the surgery) and they still forget something inside!!!
Pt and surgery check ( and they still chop off or take out the wrong thing)

And offcourse the verbal list of the consultant's song CDs(depending on his age it can be very painful procedure to try to like his music)

I think the most important thing to check is that the surgeon has done that surgery ATLEAST once with someone else!!!
