Blackrock Clinic Infection Prevention & Control Surgical Site Infection Rates Cardiac (Heart Operations)
Heart surgery patients are at a proportionally higher risk of developing an infection due to the generally poorer health associated with cardiac illness. Due to this, Cardiac Teams are especially vigilant regarding infection prevention initiatives.
In Blackrock Clinic we have a robust infection prevention programme, pre, during and post-surgery. This programme has proven to maintain lower infection rates across all patient categories.
