How You Can Prevent Surgical Site Infections?

Surgical Site Infections Can be Prevented with Proper Disinfection

We go to hospitals for getting treated for the existing health issues, be it a normal treatment, or a major treatment like surgery. But, sometimes, it is a case that we get infected by an infection, at the hospital or a surgical site only.

Surgical site infections are one of the most common hospitals acquired infection. The strength of the same varies by region. These occur because of the contamination of the environment of the patient.

In the present scenario, the risk of surgical site infection hovers somewhere around 3-4%. These infections are considered one of the most avoidable complications after surgery.

Let’s see how this can be done.

Before Surgery     

Preventing infection starts before the happening of the surgery. Any current infections should be treated before the process, and any pathogen presence should be eliminated. Anticipating the prospect of an infection, surgeries require antimicrobial prophylaxis for some surgeries.

That is managing an antimicrobial agent or antibiotic killing most bacteria associated with the surgery area. Needless hair removal or the use of razor should be avoided, and patient should be bathed with antiseptic. Cleanliness of the operating room and equipment should be taken care of.

At the time of a surgery

Disinfection and sterilization advancement also assures the cleanliness of the workers as well as equipment. Limiting the people in operating room, creating buffer areas and reducing movement. Glucose levels should also be monitored during surgeries, as it is correlated with development of SSI.

If the normal body temperature is maintained, the risk of infection can be reduced. Antimicrobial sutures, can also help to prevent the risk of these infections.


The patient environment should be kept clean to stop the transmission of pathogens. Proper wound care  should be administered by the staff of the hospital for preventing pathogens from reaching the wound.

There are many developments in preventing SSI, and the prevalence is relatively low.  But, still there is a lot of scope for improvement, when it comes to preventing these infections, which, can bring about health concerns and disturb the quality of life, to say the least.

A Lot More Can be Done

Maintaining a good hand hygiene can serve the purpose of preventing the transmission of pathogens. Apart from this, proper disinfection and sterilization of the hospital and equipment can be done on a regular basis, to ensure that, it acts as a barrier to the entry of pathogens.

The installation of biocidal, self-sanitizing materials, surfaces that continuously kill bacteria. Raw copper alloys and copper-infused EOSCU are some such materials.

These materials have the potential to destroy the bacteria before they are transmitted to a patient. This can be done without putting any kind of additional work pressure on the staff at the hospitals. These surfaces make play an integral part in reaching zero SSIs.
