Immediate Post Op Progress Note Compliance:

Our compliance has dropped for Immediate Post Op Progress Notes completion.  We are currently at 84% (Goal = 95% completion of post-op note before patient’s transfer to next level of care)

  • If Operative report is not completed immediately, an Immediate Post OP Progress note is required to be completed and signed in the patient chart before the patient is transferred to the next level of care.
