OB VTE Safety Recommendations

OB VTE Safety RecommendationsThe OB VTE Safety Recommendations were developed with the advice and counsel of a panel of experts brought together by PPAHS. The Recommendations provide four concise steps that:

  1. Assess patients for VTE risk with an easy to use automated scoring system
  2. Provide the recommended prophylaxis regimen, depending on whether the mother is antepartum or postpartum.
  3. Reassesses the patient every 24 hours or upon the occurrence of a significant event, like surgery.
  4. Ensures that the mother is provided appropriate VTE prevention education upon hospital discharge.
