The Peter Pronovost study at Johns Hopkins essentially used the
Buddy system very successfully to prevent catheter infections. Here a
nurse could correct a physician when he did something incorrectly.
 gives more on the success of this approach.
Thousands around the
world have been saved by using just a check list, which presumably would
be slightly less accurate.
The Buddy system is used successfully (with
a few breaks) to ebola case management.
The question then arises could
we save more lives and reduce errors in certain critical situations by
more widely using a buddy system, not just a check list?? And if the
Buddy system is too expensive perhaps a mandated check list?
welcome hearing what situations/procedures could benefit from a
buddy/list approach right now.
