Surgical Site Infections (SSIs) are devastating for patients and pose a significant financial risk for hospitals. Surgical Site Infections resulting from total knee or hip procedures cause excruciating pain and suffering, have a three percent mortality rate and are associated with an additional $21,000 in additional care costs per infection. As hospitals worldwide struggle to prevent infections, Alabama-based Trinity Medical Center experienced a 100 percent decrease in Surgical Site Infection rates in its orthopedic Operating Rooms (ORs) after implementing a total joint infection control bundle that includes Xenex Germ-Zapping Robots™ to disinfect its ORs and patient rooms.
