Checklists are designed to reduce errors and ensure consistency and completeness in carrying out a duty. It compensates for potential limits of human memory and attention. World Health Organization Surgical Safety Checklist demonstrated significant reductions in both morbidity and mortality with checklist implementation. Surgery checklist and anesthesia checklist are already in use. But any specific globally accepted checklist prior to pain procedure is yet to be found. Here, I suggest an initial structure of a checklist specifically designed for the pain procedures. Modification with time is well expected.
