SSI is undeniably connected to the hospital setting, the patient, site of surgery and the surgical procedure itself. However, an often-overlooked aspect of SSI is its occurrence upon discharge from hospital to home.
This EWMA Document has a special focus on the home care setting and the multidisciplinary approach needed to prevent SSI and secure treatment pathways outside the hospital setting.
