Risk assessment for treatment with LMWH
For elective admissions for surgery an assessment of risk should take place at the pre-assessment clinic appointment, where appropriate. For all others, the assessment of risk should take place on admission to the ward. Where patients are undergoing surgery, high-risk procedures should be taken into consideration as some procedures are more likely to cause a DVT or PE than are others.
