Quick Overview

This downloadable special report focuses on stopping surgical site infections. Perioperative teams can find information on SSI prevention, national SSI rates, and OR cleaning that will help protect their patients from these potentially deadly infections.



Surgical teams focus every day on ensuring the best outcomes for patients, including preventing surgical site infections (SSIs). SSIs not only cause patient suffering, but also carry regulatory and financial consequences. SSIs for certain procedures are among the hospital-acquired conditions (HACs) for which Medicare and Medicaid will no longer pay an additional amount. The Joint Commission requires facilities to be in compliance with infection prevention standards and guidelines.

This special report includes practical strategies and collaborative projects for preventing SSIs. They exemplify the culture and practice changes perioperative teams are making to protect patients from these persistent and potentially devastating complications.
