Abstract Risk factors related to operating rooms include patient-associated risks, the operating room environment, ventilation systems, cleansing and sterilization, and operating room personnel. Although constantly debated, surgical wound infection surveillance with appropriate feedback to surgeons is one of the few effective measures that helps reduce surgical infection rates, and we strongly recommend its use. We also recommend the further study of other potential components of effective infection control programs for surgical patients.
