This study describes the use of multidisciplinary rounds to enhance venous thromboembolism prevention, an important patient safety target. Nurses reported on standardized questions during the review of each patient, analogous to a checklist, and gaps in prevention were reported back to physicians to rectify them. This approach is a team-based model to enhance inpatient safety and merits study of clinical outcomes.
