Abstract

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists clinical indicator for unplanned return to the operating room during the same admission in an obstetrics and gynecology residency is reviewed in this article. A retrospective chart review of all gynecologic surgeries during a 3-year period was evaluated for this indicator. An incidence of 0.03% was noted, with 3 of 1,492 procedures meeting the definition of this indicator. The incidence of this clinical indicator is uncommon in a community hospital-based obstetrics and gynecology residency.
