Re: SSI and SIR Reporting Webinar

[ Edited ]

Here are questions from our live presentation:

 

Q: Can you explain what a SIR is?

 

Q: SIRs calculated by 6 months: Does this mean that the first report where SIRs are calculated for us will be after June 2011?

 

Q: The SIR for CBGB does not include secondary site infections of legs. Is there a way to get a SIR for secondary site infections?

 

Q: Has CMS clarified the Surgical Procedures that will qualify for reduced payment if an SSI develops?

Q: How do I obtain copy of Appendix D which listed all the risk variables for each procedure  (this tells me that age may play a factor in one surgery, whereas for another it is Diabetes, etc)?  I can't find the document in NHSN resource library.
