Abstract:
Concurrent Podium Presentation: Purpose: MDRO surgical site infections (SSI) have significant health and economic impacts and can be effectively minimized. The purpose of the presentation is to describe the interdisciplinary process used to develop and implement a successful mechanism to eliminate MDRO SSI in a Magnet hospital. Problem: This facility has had significant success in decreasing SSI through a variety of interdisciplinary efforts. However, some number of MDRO SSI persisted. In the 10-month period immediately preceding implementation of the MDRO Prevention Project, 14 cases of MRSA SSI were identified in the orthopedic and thoracic surgery populations. Solution: An interdisciplinary team of nursing, infection control, medicine, pharmacy, and others developed evidence-based process for active surveillance of MRSA in pre-operative patients and implementation of a SSI Prevention Protocol for all patients with positive nasal cultures. In addition to the existing pre-operative procedures, the SSI Prevention Protocol for MRSA-positive patients included decolonization with Mupirocin 2.15% intranasal ointment and chlorhexidine 4% antiseptic shower/baths before and after the surgery, as well as one-time antibiotic pre-op prophylaxis. In the 12-month period following implementation, no MRSA SSI have been identified. Summary: The presentation will include a description of the interdisciplinary process used to develop and implement the prevention protocol in stages. Discussion will include the interpretation of existing literature and this facility?s cost-analysis during the planning stage, the surveillance to monitor outcomes, the algorithm guiding interventions, and lessons-learned. The presentation provides an example of interdisciplinary teamwork involving nurses with a goal of improving quality of care and patient outcomes.
