As a result of the Study on the Efficacy of Nosocomial Infection Control (SENIC) project, many countries have established nationwide surveillance systems for nosocomial infections, including surgical site infections (SSIs). Since the SSI surveillance system was started in 2019 as part of the Korean National Healthcare-associated Infections Surveillance System, operated by the Korean Society for Healthcare-associated Infection Control and Prevention, 279 hospitals have participated in surveillance for 20 operative procedures. As such, the Korean National Healthcareassociated Infections Surveillance System (KONIS)-SSI will help in consistently decreasing SSIs.
