Description

Surgical site infections cause significant morbidity to patients and added cost to our healthcare system (1,2). Most surgical site prep includes an alcohol base that is highly flammable when not properly managed. With the addition of a new preoperative skin prep solution to our operating room inventory, we needed an educational campaign to help educate our staff regarding the manufacturer’s recommendations for proper application and required drying time to ensure adequate infection control and minimize the fire risk (3,4).
