All the staff of the operating block received an information about the procedure of application of the checklist. This one was organized from January 1st, 2011. An information to the whole hospital center was made via the monthly magazine CHwapi media. Posters were put in all the operating blocks of the CHwapi. An audit was made on 8280 checklists.

There has to be a coordinator of the project. Materially, it is only necessary to print the checklists. These are then recorded in the medical record of the patient (completed). There has to be one or several representative(s) of department(s) represented in the workgroup. There should be an involvement of the management (medical / nursing / general).
