Anti-staphylococcal bundle to reduce surgical site infections in orthopaedic and cardiac surgery

10 Apr 2017 | Infection Prevention & Control

A discussion paper regarding the evidence and proposed bundle of preoperative interventions to reduce Staphylococcus aureus surgical site infections was sent out to health sector stakeholders in late 2016. We now have a clear understanding of the level of support and general thoughts and concerns related to implementation of these interventions.

Below is the feedback summary of this discussion paper, along with the recommended bundle and implementation plan.

We would like to thank the various district health boards, private hospitals, and college stakeholders that responded and provided feedback to this discussion paper.
