Airline safety checks for hospitals

23rd February 2009

Safety checks similar to those used by aircraft personnel are in use by theatre staff in NHS Highland hospitals. 

The checklist, known as the surgical pause, is used before an operation is performed. The checks, which are aimed at preventing errors, are being carried out at Caithness General in Wick, Raigmore Hospital in Inverness, Lorn and Isles in Oban and Belford Hospital in Fort William.
