I am finishing this up this weekend and I am trying to get my hands around how with such a simple thing as a checklist can so many lives be saved. This excerpt from page 223:
“Within three months of implementing the interventions (in the state of Michigan), we nearly eliminated these infections in all of the 103 participating ICU’s; it has stayed that way for four years. The work was not easy; it required hospital leaders, doctors, and nurses to implement interventions, improve teamwork and monitor performance.”
You would not call this book a nonfiction masterpiece, however, from the standpoint of giving this reader something to mull over in how to use checklists in improving my performance in my occupation, it is a very thought-provoking book.
