Wisconsin Surgical Site Infection (SSI) Data

SSIs are infections that occur after surgery, in the area of the body where the procedure took place. SSIs are currently the most frequently reported serious HAIs among Wisconsin hospitals. Many hospitals and quality improvement organizations are working together to reduce these infections. The Division of Public Health provides frequently updated SSI data to monitor statewide progress toward SSI reduction.
