Who pioneered antiseptic surgery, leading to a reduction in post-operative infection and safer surgery?


It may well be doubted whether the scientific activities of any other man achieved as much for the saving of human life and the prevention and relief of physical suffering (Rutherford, 1927)

Laid the foundation for modern surgery through his introduction of the “aseptic barrier” technique ....he is rightly called one or the great benefactors of mankind. (Newsom 2009)

where are we today
Where are we today?
  • Seeing a reduction in Healthcare Associated Infection (HAI)

HEAT target of 2013

  • Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia 0.26 or less per 1000 acute occupied bed days
  • Closridium difficile 0.39 cases per 1000 total occupied bed days
  • Introduce NES Aseptic technique modules
  • Why modules have been developed
  • What procedures do they cover
  • Who they are for
  • What it means to you
  • What it means to your patients
why were modules developed
Why were modules developed?
  • HAI can prolong hospital stay for patients and can lead to sepsis and even death
  • To enhance understanding of Aseptic Technique and how it can be applied to your work
  • To encourage a consistent approach to Aseptic Technique across Scotland based on current evidence
