CATH LAB CHECKLIST DESIGNS
Srihari S. Naidu, MD, Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola, NY, and colleagues reported online in Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions that it is especially important the preprocedure "time-out" checklist be done just before vascular access and led by the "physician taking ultimate responsibility for the procedure."
The sample time-out checklist provided in the document included these six items, all of which can be  included in our customized checklist board :
•    Patient's name and medical record number
•    Procedure to be performed (e.g., left heart catheterization, coronary angiography, right heart catheterization)
•    Route to be used (e.g., right femoral artery)
•    Confirmation that the equipment needed is available or alternatives are available including intended stent type for PCI or cath-possible patients
•    Patient's allergies and pre-medication if appropriate (e.g., heparin-induced thrombocytopenia, contrast allergy)
•    Special laboratory or medical conditions (e.g., elevated international normalized ratio, chronic kidney disease)
