Guideline for Preoperative Patient Skin Antisepsis

The goal of preoperative preparation of the patient s skin is to reduce the risk of postoperative surgical site infection by removing soil and transient microorganisms from the skin; reduce the resident microbial count to subpathogenic levels in a short period of time and with the least amount of tissue irritation; and inhibit rapid, rebound growth of microorganisms.These recommended practices provide guidance for achieving skin preparation of the surgical site.
