CE Webinar: Surgical Site Infection
surgeons aim to have the best outcomes for their patients after surgery,
however, surgical site infections can be inevitable. In addition, hospital
systems and providers can be penalized when infections occur, putting the onus
on the provider or hospital. This webinar seeks to review previous and current
recommendations in the prevention of surgical site infection to optimize
peri-operative outcomes. In addition, this webinar will review appropriate
documentation and reporting of peri-operative infections to optimize billing
the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
- Implement current infection prevention recommendations in surgical practice to minimize the incidence of surgical site infection.
- Understand how to
document and report surgical infections in the peri-operative period to
optimize reimbursement patterns.
