Preoperative care is an important step in ensuring a patient’s safety before surgery. A pre-op checklist can help to ensure that all necessary steps are taken by both the patient and healthcare providers. Some items that may be included in a pre-op checklist include verifying the patient’s identity, checking for allergies, reviewing the surgical procedure, and completing any required paperwork. By taking the time to complete a pre-op checklist, patients can help to ensure a safe and smooth surgery experience.
