"If you ever need a catheter line, try to remember the work of Dr. Peter Pronovost. He's a critical-care doctor at John Hopkins Hospital, and he developed this simple checklist for medical staff to prevent infections from catheter lines:
- Wash hands with soap
- Clean the patient's skin with chlorhexidine antiseptic
- Put sterile drapes over the entire patient
- Wear a sterile mask, hat, gown, and gloves
- Put a sterile dressing over the catheter site
The results were dramatic. Line infections declined from 11 percent to 0 percent. In a 15 month period, the study showed that this checklist and the new role of nurses prevented 43 infections, 8 deaths, and saved $2 million."
Em quantas situações numa PME é possível incorporar checklists?
