Patients with SSIs

Patients who contract SSIs face a host of issues, with potentially life-changing effects:

  • the pain and discomfort of a serious infection
  • longer hospital stays with the possibility
    of weeks or even months off work
  • side effects of extended courses of antibiotics – with the risk of resistance
    ever present
  • potential loss of an infected limb
  • greater likelihood of re-admission to hospital for further surgery – often a repeat

The patient journey

There are a number of simple – but important steps – that should be followed to ensure best practice, from the moment the patient is prepared for surgery, until the time they are discharged to go home.
