Innovations in Reducing Surgical Site Infections: A Better Path to Patient Safety 

In 2015, Medicare’s penalty for hospital-acquired conditions such as surgical site infections will go into effect, putting hospitals at greater financial risk and making it imperative to reduce or eliminate SSIs. In this webinar, learn about best practices that can help you contain SSIs to reach your patient safety and financial goals. The presenters will cover the latest infection prevention techniques being used by some facilities even though these have not yet been incorporated into recommendations or standards. They will also discuss interventions such as hair removal, surgical prepping, traffic control, hand hygiene, environmental hygiene, antibiotics, glucose management, aseptic technique, surgical attire, and normothermia. This comprehensive look at SSI best practices is designed to help perioperative services leaders reduce infection rates and costs to achieve better outcomes.

As a participant, you will be able to:

  • Identify how surgical site infections relate to the Medicare penalties under value-based programs.
  • Identify best practices that reduce the risk of surgical site infections.
  • Identify ways to implement these practices at your facility.
