Abstract:traumatic injuries, unnecessary surgical deaths, and medical error continues to raise .The main aim of this paper is to assess the surgical safety compliance in an operation theatre of Tertiary care hospital. This paper is focused on study of all the surgical safety compliance in an operation theatre complex. The data was collected by observing Anaesthetists, Surgeons and operation theatre nurses who are all involved in the surgical procedures in the various operation theatres in the tertiary care teaching hospital. Collected data was analyzed by using frequency, percentage and is presented in the form of table and diagrams. The difference in the percentages among the various categories of the items such as Sign in (100% compliance with confirmation of patient identity and 98% with confirmation of the site of operation, patient confirmation of procedure in 95% of cases and 100% check by Anesthetists for patient safety), Time out (confirmation of the procedure in 94.4% of cases, 100% consistency in the verification of instrument sterility by nurses, the equipment issues were addressed well (99%), the antibiotic prophylaxis given within 60 minutes (100%) and Sign out (Equipment was addressed well (99%),100% labelling of specimen was done accurately) has been calculated.
