The etiology of surgical site infection (SSI) is multifactorial, with efforts to combat it employing "bundled" initiatives. Preoperative antiseptic wash was classified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as a Category IB strongly recommended and accepted practice. Its inclusion, in a best-practice bundle, may contribute to reduction in SSIs. We describe our quality improvement initiative to increase adherence to this critical bundle element.
