Abstract

Background. Various surveillance methods have been described for surveillance of surgical site infections (SSI). The aim of this study was to examine practicality of SSI risk assessment methods (Study on the Efficacy of Nosocomial Infection Control [SENIC] and National Nosocomial Infections Surveillance [NNIS]) with a postoperative wound monitoring scale (ASEPSIS) as an outcome assessment measure.
