ASCRS CE Webinar: Surgical Site Infection


ASCRS CE Webinar: Surgical Site Infection

All 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 and coding.


At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:

  1. Implement current infection prevention recommendations in surgical practice to minimize the incidence of surgical site infection.
  2.  Understand how to document and report surgical infections in the peri-operative period to optimize reimbursement patterns.
