Victorian Hospitals Post-Operative Orders Form

The Department of Health & Human Services has developed a standardised post-operative orders form to ensure that all hospital staff are aware of the specific clinical orders relating to a patient’s post-operative care and to minimise any risks of harm.

The Victorian Hospitals Post-Operative Orders Form provides a standard format for surgeons and anaesthetists to provide clear and detailed instructions to medical and nursing staff upon clinical handover of a patient after an operative procedure.
