Abstract BACKGROUND: A database study to test a new model of surgical safety checklist for eye surgery in the outpatient operating room, especially for cataract surgery and intravitreal anti-VEGF injections. METHODS: WHO Surgical Safety Checklist analysis, and changes to obtain a customized surgical safety checklist for eye surgery. Testing of the new checklist in the outpatient operating room of the Institute of Ophthalmology, University of Modena during a period of 4 months (January-April 2011). All cataract surgery and intravitreal anti-VEGF operations were included in the study, and controlled by the new surgical safety checklist. The percentage of answers to each safety check was calculated to obtain an estimate of adherence to our new checklist. RESULT: Eight hundred and forty nine procedures (390 cataract, 452 anti-VEGF injections, seven combined surgery) were analyzed. The study showed a high level of adherence to the majority of the safety checks in the checklist. Important differences were identified in consent confirmation (correct confirmation in 99.76 %, no confirmation in 0.24 %), surgical site marking (correct marking in 99.29 %, no marking in 0.71 %), patient cooperation during operation (95.17 % of patients were cooperative, 4.83 % of patients were uncooperative), adherence to antibiotic prophylaxis (correct prophylaxis in 93.17 %, no prophylaxis in 6.83 %), critical situation during surgical procedures (no critical situation in 91.76 %, critical situation in 8.24 %) CONCLUSION: The study showed a high level of adherence to the checklist. A surgical safety checklist could improve the management of an eye surgery operating room.
