About Us - Our Performance - Surgical Site Infection Prevention Rate for Hip and Knee Replacements - Reporting



Twitter



Question: What is being reported and when?

Answer: The public reporting of this indicator will reveal the percent of all eligible patients who get antibiotics at the right time, just before a “first time” joint replacement surgery.  If a patient has had a revision or “re-do”, this will not be included in the data.

 

The first reporting period will cover March 2009 only. Future reporting periods will include data from the three months prior to the reporting month. The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care will also post the previous quarter’s data, by hospital site, on its website (www.ontario.ca/patientsafety).

 

Question: What is the method of calculation for the SSI prevention percentage? 

Answer: The method of calculation is the percentage of primary hip/knee surgical patients who are given an antibiotic starting at an appropriate time prior to the skin incision.

 

See the SSI Rate Reporting Fact Sheet for information on reporting and how the rate is calculated.

 

We are working on better data collection processes, to ensure that our SSI percentages are as high as possible.
