Nasal Decolonization: Who Nose the New Guideline Best?

Protocols for nasal decolonization prior to surgical procedures vary by institution, and the newly updated AORN Guideline for Preoperative Skin Antisepsis will assist healthcare professionals with navigating risk-based decisions for developing preoperative decolonization programs at their facilities. Test your understanding of nasal decolonization’s role in SSI prevention and learn more about how to improve outcomes for surgical patients through decolonization programs – plus ask your questions during a live Q&A with the experts.
