awareness or education. It is determined that staff can lack knowledge of following the correct postoperative procedures; thus resulting in SSI (Weston & Weston, 2013). It is with these problems that the issue surrounding the SSI causes, treatment, and prevention need addressed. It is intimated that the SSI menace is suppressing the strategies of health care in standard processes. Therefore, this leads to a barrage of challenges that in turn influence the quality of health care delivery. The purpose of this project is to combat non-compliance of staff due to increased infection data monitors resulting in a staff buy in for surgical quality of care using an individual surgical standard checklist approach.

The studies have a consistent variable concluding compliance for reducing SSI. By initiating antibiotics during a specific time frame prior to surgery and stopping antibiotics within 24 hours after the surgical procedure shows a decrease in SSI. Initiating antibiotics reduces SSI including the implementation of specific actions to eliminate preventable surgical site infections. Having compliant standards with adherence to preventable practice will affect SSI (Leaper, et al. 2014; Weston, D. 2013). This applies the important aspect of implementing a staff compliance tool to build a method of responsibility to improvement initiatives. As research measures are applied to surgical procedures the evidence expands to additional practices that further reduce infection risk. This search included prevention guidelines to educate staff on consistent approaches to implementing practice outcomes. The prevention education enhances the clinician’s knowledge on data initiated in the Surgical Care Improvement Project (SCIP). These core measures include antibiotic selection, antibiotic prophylaxis, patient hair removal, and operating room temperature control. The research is consistent of SSI preventative interventions for preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative care improving SSI risk, including frequency of staff education for all standards to
