Surgical Care Improvement / Infection Prevention

Hospitals can reduce the risk of wound infection after surgery by making sure patients get the right medicines at the right time on the day of their surgery. These quality measures show some of the standards of care.

These process of care measures, tracked as part of the national Surgical Care Improvement Project (SCIP), tell you how many patients at Griffin Hospital get treatments recommended for most adult surgical patients.
