SSIs, a healthcare associated infections (HAIs), have resulted in higher medical costs for both the patient and the organization due to re-admission to the hospital within 30 days of discharge and additional surgical procedures. In addition, SSIs have the potential for causing additional psychological and physical stress to the patent, as well as crippling the reputation of the organization. The aim of this Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Project was to implement the Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) Protocol which encompasses evidenced-based practice (EBP) surgical procedures approved by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) to help reduce the potential for SSI development.|
