Surgical safety and efficiency

The difference of helping to reduce the risk for infection and improve efficiency in the operating room

Surgical site infections (SSIs) are a large financial burden and they negatively impact a patient's quality of life

1.7 million

Patients are infected with healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) every year1

HAIs cost $30 billion

To the healthcare system annually1

30% of all HAIs

Are SSIs2

Did you know…

A 1.5-hour increase in general surgery duration = 2X increase in the probability of infectious complications.3

We can help you reduce the risk for infection through properly managing your OR workflow and inventory, including ensuring that the right products and instruments are on hand when you need them.

We'll partner with you to assess your current methods from consult to recovery, then help you implement and sustain best practices based on how BD solutions can help deliver better clinical and economic outcomes.

Optimize from consult through recovery

Integrating preoperative patient cleansing as a best practice helps to minimize the bacterial load on skin that can cause infection.
