A Letter from P'Fella

What is the 'perfect' operation note?

Hey Team!

Dive into a crucial but often overlooked part of our surgical practice—perfecting the operation note. Let's turn this routine document into an art form of clarity and precision!


Why Operation Notes Matter

An operation note isn't just routine paperwork; it's a crucial narrative that guides post-operative care and communicates important decisions. By refining our approach, we can ensure that these notes serve as effective, comprehensive guides.

What Did People on Twitter Say?

I put out a tweet during the week asking for the most important aspect to an operation note. Here were the key themes:

  • Promptness: Document details on the day for maximum accuracy.
  • Clear Plans: Ensure post-op plans are straightforward and executable by anyone.
  • Honest Reporting: Accurately describe the OR events without embellishment.
  • Optimal Detail: Aim for notes that are informative yet succinct.

What's your preference??

Let’s elevate our standard for operation notes together. The team are building surgical technique templates and your feedback is key!


- Operation notes guide detailed, accurate post-op care.
