Gawande elegantly describes the history of the checklist as a quality and safety tool, in fields ranging from flying airplanes to building skyscrapers. In health care, he focuses on the Michigan Keystone Project , in which the use of checklists led to a remarkable decrease in the rate of central line—associated bloodstream infections, and on his own work with the World Health Organization's Safe Surgery Saves Lives program, where checklist use was associated with a striking decrease in surgical complications.
Gawande discusses professionalism, surgical errors, and patient safety. Inpatient notes: Br J Surg. Debriefing in the OR: Operating room fires. Perception of the usability and implementation of a metacognitive mnemonic to check cognitive errors in clinical setting.
Quality improvement in ambulatory surgery centers: Patient Safety: A Health Affairs Briefing. Scaling safety: Health Aff Millwood. Bringing perioperative emergency manuals to your institution: Surgical safety checklists in children's surgery: Pediatr Qual Saf.
Emergency department checklist: Guideline implementation: ISBN: He describes how even the best of clinicians in the best of organisations can make a small assumption and care is compromised — or ask a small question and a mistake is narrowly averted.

As a researcher, and surgeon, Gawande relates the science of making healthcare better and suggests that predictable processes well-honed checklists can be applied to prevent the most uncertain of possible errors.
Every day people like us go to work hoping to make people better. Professional discipline, experience, knowledge and practice are put to the test with every patient encounter. A well-read author in the USA, Gawande vividly teases out what we can learn from the realities of healthcare and how to decrease the risk of mistakes that could be made, and are made, at every level.
Improvement of a healthcare system is indeed a science, and this author relates data and lessons learned from the airline and architecture industries, where slight errors may cost many lives. He discusses his role with the World Health Organization trying to implement and study the impact of surgical checklists around the world, including at St. Mary's Hospital in London.
His assertions are not easy assumptions, however, that a simple checklist solves all problems.
