Kara’s tip: Documenting a laparotomy or cystoscopy after caesarean section: when to document it as two separate cases

When documenting a laparotomy or cystoscopy performed after a caesarean section,

we suggest you complete the outcomes section of the obstetrics module first.


If you do a postpartum laparotomy for PPH, to remove ovary or uterus, that would count as a second procedure, and we recommend you enter a new case.
