Abstract: Aims: The present study was undertaken for assessing surgical site infection cases of intestinal perforation.
Materials and methods: A total of 17 patients were enrolled. Complete demographic details of all the patients were obtained. Only those patients were included which were within the age group of 20 to 65 years and had acute intestinal perforation. Surgical site infection was classified according to national research council as Class I (Clean), Class II (Clean-contaminated), Class III (Contaminated) and Class IV (Dirty infected). Incidence of surgical site infection was recorded. All the results were recorded and analysed by SPSS software.
Results: Overall incidence of surgical site infection was 29.42 percent. Class III surgical site infection was the most common found to be present in 17.65 percent of the patients. Mean hospital stay was significantly higher among the patients with surgical site infection.
Conclusion: Surgical site infection is rapidly identified as a degree of the quality of patient care by surgeons, infection control practitioners, health planners and public.
