Venous thromboembolism prophylaxis is suboptimal in the US despite long-standing evidence-based recommendations. The aim of this subset analysis of the Epidemiologic International Day for the Evaluation of Patients at Risk for Venous Thromboembolism in the Acute Hospital Care Setting (ENDORSE) study was to identify characteristics of hospitals with high guideline-recommended prophylaxis use.
