Abstract

To improve documentation of compartment syndrome, an educational program was instituted and a chart insert consisting of a preprinted checklist of history and physical examination parameters for at-risk patients was created. From October 2004 to May 2005, a total of 45 consecutive at-risk patients were identified. Progress notes were divided into group 1 (educational program alone) and group 2 (educational program and checklist). Group 2 showed more complete documentation than group 1. The combination of a chart insert and an educational program proved to be more effective than an educational program alone for improving the documentation of compartment syndrome.
