FIT-ACER Human Reliability Checklist

The FIT-ACER checklist builds on Atul Gawande’s best selling book, “The Checklist Manifesto”, which documents how hospitals are learning from pilot checklists to improve human reliability for doctors, nurses, and technicians in operating rooms.


The acronym, FIT-ACER, is to make the steps easy to remember. The acronym arose from keywords in the groupings of essential steps, and had the added benefit that “FIT” was seen as a key aspect of being ready to do our work, while “ACE” was a reflection of our expertise in our technology.
