Abstract

Background Operations performed by surgeons working at Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) and surgery residents have not been compared. Methods Procedure codes logged by general surgery residents graduating from our institution in 2013 and 2014 were obtained. Procedure codes were obtained for all CAHs in our state for 2012 to 2013. Clinically relevant categories were compared among residents and general surgeons at CAHs. Results A total of 34,246 procedures logged by general surgeons at CAHs were compared with 31,977 procedures logged by surgery residents. Endoscopy comprised 56.1% of cases done by general surgeons versus 9.1% of cases by residents (P
