Fight to Prevent Infections at the Site
Despite modern advancements in infection prevention, health care-acquired infections (HAIs) remain one of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States and are responsible for nearly 100,000 deaths each year.1 Surgical site infections (SSIs) are the second most-common HAI, accounting for 20% of all HAIs among hospitalized patients.2 Post-operative SSIs are the most common healthcare-associated infection in surgical patients3 , occurring in up to 5 percent of surgical patients.
SSIs are a major public health concern for health care providers and patients alike. Studies find that surgical patients who develop an SSI are more than twice as likely to die as those who dont.5 If an SSI occurs, a patient is 60 percent as likely to spend time in the ICU after surgery than is an uninfected surgical patient.
