Reduce Surgical Site Infections (SSIs) before, during, and after surgery with 3M

Consistently clear care: The 3M Surgical Site Care Bundle

  • Objectives:

      

    • To remove microorganisms which normally colonise the skin
    • To prevent the recolonisation of microorganisms at the operative site

    The risk of SSIs decreases when all elements of the 3M Care Bundle are employed. The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) highlights that clear, consistent information and advice for patients and carers must be offered throughout all stages of care.

    This care bundle is based on NICE guidelines, expert advice and other national and international infection prevention and control guidance. It also supports implementation of the World Health Organization (WHO) Surgical Check list.(4-10) To view all sources of guidance included in this care bundle and their date of implementation,
