Text Description

This Exhibit shows the modified flow diagram for identifying surgical site infection (SSI) cases. To the left of the manual flow process is a small diagram showing flow of microbiology and hospital admissions data into electronic reports. Electronic medical record review (without floor visits) sends notice of a potential case for verification and, separately, information needed to document the potential SSI case. This documentation is aggregated monthly for reporting.
