Checklists are proven tools for getting things done-and more importantly, getting things done the right way every time. By providing a standardized approach, checklists simplify complex tasks and processes. When used consistently and correctly, a well- developed checklist can help ensure safe patient care. This updated third edition of the best-selling Joint Commission Big Book of Checklists includes new and revised checklists, tools, and templates for health care organizations to use and customize. There are checklists for a myriad of tasks, including accreditation preparation, continuous compliance, and performance improvement. New topics in this third edition include health care worker safety, workplace violence prevention and mitigation, cybersecurity, telehealth, health care equity, and much more. These tried-and-true checklists help organizations evaluate tasks and processes, provide guidance for decision-making, and itemize procedure steps and required "to-dos." The book also includes checklist templates and encourages health care organizations to build their own checklists to tackle organization-specific challenges.
