The South Carolina Hospital Association (SCHA) is embarking on a new patient safety program that can potentially save hundreds of patient lives each year and reduce the number of major surgical complications up to 30 percent. South Carolina is partnering with renowned surgeon and author, Atul Gawande, in introducing a Surgical Safety Checklist in every operating room in the state.

Dr. Gawande currently serves as the lead of the World Health Organization's Safe Surgery Saves Lives Initiative where they created a three-part surgical checklist that was demonstrated to reduce surgery related complications by more than one-third. Most recently, Gawande documented his experience creating and testing the WHO Surgical Safety Checklist in his New York Times Bestseller, "The Checklist Manifesto".
