"SCIP"ping antibiotic prophylaxis guidelines in trauma: The consequences of noncompliance.
Summary of ""SCIP"ping antibiotic prophylaxis guidelines in trauma: The consequences of noncompliance."
The Surgical Care Improvement Project (SCIP) established surgical antibiotic prophylaxis guidelines as part of a national patient safety initiative aimed at reducing surgical complications such as surgical site infection (SSI). Although these antibiotic prophylaxis guidelines have become well established in surgical patients, they remain largely unstudied in patients with injury from trauma undergoing operative procedures. We sought to determine the role of these antibiotic prophylaxis guidelines in preventing SSI in patients undergoing trauma laparotomy.
