Surgical Site Infections (SSI)

The Surgical Site Infection (SSI) prevention percentage refers only to the use of antibiotics that help prevent surgical site infections from occurring in hip and knee joint replacement surgeries- that is, the percentage of hip/knee replacement surgical patients that received prophylactic antibiotic within the appropriate time prior to surgery.  Hospitals are not measuring actual surgical site infections.

The public reporting of the indicator will reveal the percent of all eligible patients who get antibiotics at the right time, just before a "first time" joint replacement surgery. If a patient has had a revision or "re-do", this will not be included in the data.

Hip and knee joint replacement surgieries are only performed at our Stratford General Hospital site.
