Guess Who's Coming to Surgery?
A discussion of patient risk factors for surgical site infections and strategies for risk reduction.
Surgical site infections (SSIs) are a major post-operative concern for all members of the surgical team. Peri-operative personnel play a critical role in the prevention of SSIs by assessing individual patient factors that may increase the patient's risk of a surgical site infection and planning appropriate interventions to reduce the risk. In this program, patient risk factors for SSIs and risk reduction strategies will be addressed.
