I am looking to see if anyone reviews OB charts. If you do - do review all patients. Including the c-sections and vaginal deliveries?? We are looking to review them in the future but anted to see what others are doing!!
We review OB charts that have been in house 4 days or greater. These are the ones that have some issue which is keeping them longer than the approved insurance stay
What opportunities are you finding with your OB patients?
We found opportunities for documentation of co-morbid conditions in our OB patient population. Basically the same things you look for on your Med-Surg patient...this patient just has a passenger or two with them that may exacerbate conditions. We see many high risk OB patients who have CHF, CKD, etc.. those were a big area for improvement for us. We also found the regular clarifications for "low sodium", etc..
