  Purpose

Telerounding is the use of wireless remote video-confrencing to assess hospitalized patients. Physicians thus rely on all ususal data collected during bedside rounds with the exeption of a direct physical exam. The intention of this study is to determine if post-operative morbidity can be identified in an accurate and timely manner.
