ABSTRACT

Background: One thousand and ninety-one (1,091) different personnel participated in the clean orthopaedic surgical site infection study at the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospitals Complex (OAUTHC), Ile-Ife, Nigeria, between December 2013 to May 2016. Their contribution strongly affected the outcome of the study in terms of the host, bacteria and environment. Furthermore, Seventy-five participants were recruited for the study but only three (4%) of them had surgical site infection (SSI) while seventy-two did not develop SSI. The groups’ personnel capacity is shown in this study. Method: The personnel were divided into different categories with respect to their specialization/job duties, age and sex. The groups were associated to their physical duties carried out at different sections of the hospital environments, such as, operation theatre, theatre operation tables and hospital ward. Results: Seventy-five participants were recruited for the study but only three (4%) had surgical site infection. Among the seventy-five subjects, forty – four (58.7%) was male and 31 (41.3%) female. Their age ranged from a year old (1 yr) infant to an eighty year old (80 yr) woman. The mean age of participants was 35.82 ± 0.48 (standard error of mean) for male and 43.65 ± 0.47 for female, with most of the subjects within the age range of twenty one and forty. The majority of the subjects were between the age group of twenty one to forty. Three (4%) out of the seventy – five subjects had post – operative surgical site infection and two (66.67 %) of them being male and one (33.33 %) female. Conclusion: The study showed that a high number of personnel were involved in the procedures and thus suggests possibility of contamination in the theatre and the wards.
