Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Surgical site infection (SSI) is a serious public health problem considering its incidence, mortality, and high financial cost, accounting for about 14% to 16% of all hospital infections. An epidemiological study aiming to identify risk factors of SSI in patients undergoing surgery in a public teaching hospital in Minas Gerais, Brazil, was conducted. It considered of a sample of 138 patients with confirmed ISC. The data were obtained from the infection notification forms and medical records of these patients with the Archive Service of Statistics and Medical. It was observed that 54.4% of patients were female, mean age was 42.2 years, 49.3% were smokers, 37% consumed alcohol, 40.6% had comorbidities, 38.4% had the infection preoperatively, 5.1% were overweight or obese, 6.5% were taking immuno-suppressive drugs, and the average days of preoperative hospital stay was 2.3 days ranging from zero to 30 days. It was found that 37% were contaminated in surgery, 32.6% potentially contaminated, 21.7% infected, and 8% clean. The majority of surgeries (83.3%) was urgent or emergency, 46.4% large, 29% medium, and 68.8% of patients remained with drains in the postoperative period. In most cases (97.1%), antibiotics were used and staphylococcus aureus and S. epidermidis were the prevalent microorganisms. It was concluded that the presence of the infectioun preoperatively, duration of preoperative hospitalization, prolonged, obesity, contaminated surgery, comorbidities, and surgical emergency care were the main risk factors identified for the occurrence of SSI. It is hoped that these results may support the development and implementation of care protocol aiming at the prevention and control of SSI.
