PURPOSE: Currently venous thromboembolism (VTE) is still considered a common preventable condition in hospitalized patients. However a significant proportion of VTE cases occur in patients who have received appropriate prophylactic measures according to the current guidelines. Financial implications for healthcare institutions for quality performance and costs incurred from the event can be substantial. We propose a classification system for preventable VTE versus non-preventable VTE cases based on compliance with appropriate prophylaxis based on current evidenced based guidelines.
