Wood/Connelly, 2020
Tuscon Medical Center developed an SSI Reduction Pathway incorporating both current and newly implemented strategies to address SSIs in their C-section patient population. Among additions were Hibiclens® pre-operative showering, standardized wound care instructions, and a decision tree for Mepilex® Border Post-Op Ag use by surgeons. SSI rates decreased from 18 in 2018 to 2 year to date (October) in 2019: an 88% decrease.
