Title:
Challenges in reporting surgical site infections to the national surgical site infection surveillance and suggestions for improvement.
Authors:
Singh, Sarvpreet; Davies, J; Sabou, S; Shrivastava, R; Reddy, S
Abstract:
Mandatory orthopaedic surgical site infection (SSI) data in England are used as a benchmark to compare infection rates between participating hospitals. According to the national guidelines, trusts are required to submit their data for at least one quarter of the year but they are free to report for all quarters. Owing to this ambiguity, there is a concern about robust reporting across trusts and therefore the accuracy of these data. There is also concern about the accuracy of collection methods. The aim of this five-year retrospective study was to assess the accuracy of SSI reporting at two hospitals in South East England under the same trust.
