Saving Lives: The Key to Preventing a Common Postoperative Complication

Join us as we explore the groundbreaking collaboration of Dr. Samuel J. Lin, MD, MBA, FACS, an Associate Professor of Plastic Surgery at Harvard Medical School, and QUAD A, the global authority in accrediting outpatient healthcare centers. Their unprecedented study built upon the legacy of QUAD A-supported articles, focusing on the risks and prevalence of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) in outpatient surgery. The paper dives into the intricacies of DVT prophylaxis, accreditation compliance, and patient risk, revealing profound insights. This exploration has reshaped our understanding of outpatient surgical practices and their implications on patient well-being.

Dr. Lin and his team of researchers, Iulianna C. Taritsa, BA; Jose Foppiani, MD, and Angelica Hernandez Alvarez, MD, analyzed QUAD A’s proprietary Patient Safety Data Reporting (PSDR) metrics for their research.
