Abstract:

Surgical site infections (SSIs) have negative clinical and financial outcomes for patients and healthcare organizations. Each surgical site infection increases cost, no longer to the patient, but to the organization. SSIs are considered nosocomial infections and are the most common seen with the surgical patient.  The need to find ways to decrease the incidence of SSIs is a primary concern for a federal healthcare organization on the central eastern coast of the United States. A quality improvement plan was implemented using the antibiotic protocol from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) and the Surgical Care Improvement Project (SCIP), which focused on providing antibiotics 60 minutes before incision. During a 30 day timeframe with 136 Operating Room cases completed, 96% received antibiotics prior to 60 minutes with no SSIs noted.
