MARTINS, Matilde Delmina da Silva  y  FERNANDES, Alfredo Carlos Preto. Implementation of bundles in preventing infection after total hip arthroplastyImplementación de las medidas de prevención de infección después de la colocación de una prótesis total de cadera. Rev. Enf. Ref. [online]. 2019, vol.serIV, n.21, pp.101-109. ISSN 0874-0283.  http://dx.doi.org/10.12707/RIV18051.

Background: Surgical site infections are among the most common healthcare-associated infections in hospitalized patients. Objective: To analyze the effectiveness of the measures implemented for preventing surgical site infections in patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty. Methodology: Retrospective cohort study. The sample comprised all patients undergoing hip arthroplasty between 1 October 2014 and 31 September 2016. A grid was created to enter the data selected for the study, in compliance with the standard for prevention of surgical site infections and isolation of infectious agents from the Directorate-General of Health. Results: In the sample of 214 participants, 56.1% were male patients, with a mean age of 71.04 years and 19.2% had diabetes. The overall rate of surgical site infection of 6.1% decreased by 28.4% after the implementation of prevention bundles. Conclusion: The number of infections decreased after the implementation of the bundles, and thus their implementation is relevant.
