A prospective, concurrent and observational study was conducted over a period of six months, after getting approval by the Institutional Ethics committee. A well designed patient data collection proforma for collecting the required data from post-operative patients by using chart review method in Obstetrics and Gynecology ward of a tertiary care teaching hospital. The data was analyzed using descriptive analysis with the help of SPSS software. The results shown are a total of 582 cases were analyzed during the following study period. Out of 582 patients, 559 (96%) were prescribed with parenteral Cefotaxime and Metronidazole. Post-operative pain was managed with Tramadol (87%). All patients were prescribed with an antibacterial agent and analgesic (100%). The percentage of encounters with an injection prescribed was 100% in our study. Out of 19 different drugs prescribed, 16 (84.21%) were from the Essential Medicines WHO Model List (2015) and 10 (52.63%) were prescribed by their generic name. Accordingly, the study can be concluded as it provides valuable insight about the overall pattern of drug used in postoperative patients.
