Abstract:

Surgical site infections (SSIs) are а leading infectious pathology in surgical hospital wards with broad variance of the incidence depending on the profile. The ratio of SSI as part of all healthcare associated infections registered in the hospital wards of general and abdominal surgery wards in Bulgaria for the period 2015-2016 is 63.83%. The highest occurrence of the superficial SSIs is registered in urology sectors- 91.28%, deep tissue SSIs are predominant in neurosurgery wards- 31.29 % and SSIs of a specific organ and/or body space are with highest rate in thoracic surgery sectors- 34, 24%. E. coli is the primary etiological pathogen in all SSIs classification categories especially in the General and Abdominal surgery wards. In Thoracic-, Cardio-, Vascular-, Orthopaedic and Neurosurgery sectors the leading cause of superficial SSIs is S. aureus.
