Project Description

INFECTION CONTROL AT HOME

What is a Surgical Site Infection (SSI)? A surgical site infection is an infection that occurs after surgery in the part of the body where the surgery took place.

At Fakeeh Home Healthcare, our nurses are trained to assess signs and symptoms of infection and perform infection control measures when handling patients at home.

HOW WE CAN HELP

  • Explaining everything you need to know about taking care of your wound.

  • Making sure to keep the patient and environment as clean as possible.

  • Monitoring for any symptoms of an infection and/or complications after surgery

  • Administering medications for existing or developing infections
