Want to improve patient safety? Make a checklist
from Dr. Bicuspid
Checklists may be a practical and efficient way to improve patient safety in the dental office. Two safety experts explained why in the July issue of the Journal of the California Dental Association. Research suggests dental practitioners average two errors per day, and about 1% of these errors lead to an adverse event. Checklists may help prevent these human errors, according to article authors Oluwabunmi Tokede, B.D.S., M.P.H., and Elsbeth Kalenderian, D.D.S., M.P.H., Ph.D.
