Abstract

A study to determine the effect of using clippers in reducing surgical site infections among the post operative abdominal surgery patients in a selected private hospital in Kolkata. Abstract- Introduction – Despite remarkable advances in the use of surgical techniques and prophylactic antibiotics and environmental/ergonomic improvements in the operating room, surgical site infections (SSIs) remain a significant cause of patient morbidity and mortality and are the third-most common source of hospital-acquired infection. Of concern is that SSIs occur in up to 30% of all surgical procedures, and yet most are preventable. The economic impacts on the health care system are substantial, including increased hospital length of stay and escalating hospital costs, rising from two fold to fivefold. Objectives - • To find SSI rates among the post operative abdominal surgery patients using razor for shaving (control group) preoperatively. • To find SSI rates among the post operative abdominal surgery patients using Clippers for shaving preoperatively. • To compare the effectiveness of Clippers by finding the SSI rates in both the cases. Research Methodology – Experimental research approach was selected for the study. Post test only control group design was taken for the study .Sample Size - 60 (30 for razor, 30 for clipper) Patient undergoing abdominal surgery, age group between 20 to 50 years were taken as the population. Non Probability purposive sampling was used for the study Data was collected through Interview schedule related to demographic data, surgical safety checklist by WHO and Criteria of identifying SSI as per CDC guidelines. Findings of the study- Majority samples are Female 38 (63.3%) and male samples are 22 (36.7%). Majority samples 32(53.3) are belongs to age group of 31 to 40 years. Majority samples are graduate 42 (70%). Majority samples 36 (60%) are belongs to (Rs 40,000 to Rs 50,000) income group .Total patients – 60, samples were taken from abdominal surgery. Appendesectomy 8 (13.4%), LUCS 9 (15%), Cholecystectomy 13 (21.7%), Hysterectomy 17(28.4%), Herniorapphy 4(6.68%), Hernioplasty 3(5%), Laparotomy 6(10%). Incidence of SSIs in cases of abdominal surgeries. Total cases of abdominal surgeries 60. SSIs among all cases 2. Total incidence 3.3% Incidence of SSIs according to type of surgery . one (12.5% reported from Appendesectomy) one (50.8% reported from Laparotomy) from the Razor shaving group .Bacteria found in SSI –Laparotomy - Acinetobacter spp .Appendesectomy – Escherichia coli .Those individuals who had undergone preoperative hair removal with clippers had no incidence of surgical site infection when compared to those with razors (3.3%).The difference was statistically significant, with a p value of 0.024 by Chi-Square tests.
