Abstract

Introduction In recent years, we have noticed that centres for clinical treatments have facilitates for surgery patients. These facilitates can help patients and theirs families to take recovery and safety in using healthy professional cares. Telephone follow-up following office in out-patients is usual observation for their surgery. The aim was evaluation of security and safety of this method of follow-up and use of this method for the post operation pediatric patients who visit the clinic. Materials and Methods The patients followed up for 6 months after the surgery by telephone. Special form completed for each patient. These forms were clinical records and follow-up. Results We evaluated 120 out-patients. In 108 cases, we had good communications with their parents. Twelve cases didn�t have an communication (neither telephone nor through post operation visit to clinic). A total of 10 cases came to clinic for the post operation visit without any calling them, because they thought that they were needed. Although, we advised 8 cases to visit the clinic. Conclusion Follow-up through telephone with organized protocol is a current method of follow-up in elective surgical patients. It is not only safe but also it is less expensive and saves time for patients, parents and physicians.
