Welcome to the MSSIC SSI toolkit. It contains past MSSIC presentations focused on SSI prevention and MSSIC developed resources such as: Back to the basics, MSSIC Personal and Home Hygiene patient education tool, and the MSSIC SSI Prevention Guidelines. Also included are numerous publication articles with a focus on SSI prevention. Each MSSIC site is encouraged to assess the current state at their institution, perform root cause analysis, and take into consideration their unique patient population and unique site culture when developing an action plan. Our hope is that the following tools and resources will assist you in that process.
