This flow chart illustrates the sequential standards in the National Safety Standards for Invasive Procedures 2 combined with the World Health Organization (WHO) surgical safety checklist.
The National Safety Standards for Invasive Procedures 2 (NatSIPPs 2) are intended to share the learning and best practice to support multidisciplinary teams and organisations to deliver safer care. They consist to two inter-related sets of standards:
- Organisational standards – clear expectations of what Trusts and external bodies should do to support teams to deliver safe invasive care.
- Sequential standards – the procedural steps that should be taken where appropriate by individuals and teams, for every patient undergoing an invasive procedure.
The flow chart below combines the NatSIPPs 2 sequential standards with the WHO Surgical Safety Checklist to provide a simple visual reminder tool for health and care staff. Its author is Nigel Roberts, Head Theatre Practitioner (Head of Nursing) at Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, and the flow chart was produced with support from Patient Safety Learning and Dr Annie Hunningher.
