Objectives The authors propose a new checklist model adapted for safety miniscalpel acupuncture procedure of cervical and lumbar spine. Methods On the basis of available literature and expert opinion, a prototype checklist was developed. The checklist was adapted on the basis of observation of daily practice. Results The checklist has three parts: 1. prevention and management of healthcare associated infections, 2. verification list before and after miniscalpel acupuncture treatment, 3. adverse event monitoring after procedure. We presented a summary checklist based on the above contents. Conclusions We propose the first patient safety checklist for minicalpel acupuncture treatment of cervical and lumbar spine. The checklist will be complemented using further research methodologies.
