SSI Audit

Closed 14 Dec 2018

Opened 1 Oct 2018

Overview

This GIRFT audit was undertaken into surgical site infection as it was understood there was a general lack of awareness of infection rates among surgical units, a variation between surgical specialties in practice of SSI reporting and a lack of wider sharing among trusts of data collected.

A total of 95 trusts participated covering 59 surgical procedures.  The GIRFT team has worked closely with Clinical Leads to develop a report which has been released to individual trusts.
