Decreasing surgical-site infections (SSI) at lower costs is important to every hospital. Join us to hear about a pilot project at Kettering Health that promoted the use of low-cost povidone-iodone nasal swabs and resulted in a 70% decrease in the SSI rate over the course of the study. This project helped Jefferson win a business innovation award!
