Saint Francis Medical Center strives to give patients the best care, which includes preventive measures to avoid a surgical site infection after surgery. Preventing infection is a group effort and involves our physicians, staff and patients. Do your part by practicing good post-surgery hygiene at home and knowing these infection indicators:
Fever and chills
Redness around the incision
We created these post-surgery infection control videos to teach you about proper wound care for a speedier recovery. You can pick up a DVD version, now playing throughout the Medical Center, simply by asking your healthcare provider for a copy.
