Surgical Infections

Quality Indicator: Preventative antibiotic received within one hour before surgery

Hospitals can reduce the risk of infection after surgery by making sure patients get the right antibiotic at the right time on the day of their surgery. Research shows that surgery patients who get antibiotics within the hour before their operation are less likely to get an infection at their incision site. Getting an antibiotic earlier, or after surgery begins, is not as effective. This shows how often Reid makes sure surgery patients get antibiotics at the right time before their surgery.

Quality Indicator: Preventative antibiotic stopped within 24 hours after surgery

Taking antibiotics for more than 24 hours after routine surgery is usually not necessary and can increase the risk of side effects such as stomach aches, diarrhea, and antibiotic resistance. This measure shows how often Reid stops giving antibiotics within 24 hours after surgery.
