Cancelled Surgeries Cost Hospitals up to 6 Thousand Dollars for each Procedure

Tulane University Medical Center 2009 study

Use the pre op checklist board to be sure each patient is properly prepped and documented for surgery. A 2009 study by Tulane University Medical Center estimates cancelled surgeries to cost $6,000 each.

Checklist Boards have been documented to reduce preventable errors such as taking a patient to the OR with a signed consent by as much as 30%. Anecdotal evidence supports the elimination of this event with the implementation of our pre op checklist board.
