During the third quarter of 2017, there were two hip and 2 knee infections. Our Infection Prevention Director collaborated with the Orthopedic Task Force, which includes the physicians to conduct a root cause analysis to determine the reason for the infections. Improvement efforts include installing equipment to further protect from environmental factors and reemphasizing accountability to best practices to prevent infections. There have been no additional infections reported.
