Patient Safety Tool: SSI Data Tracker Worksheet

The Institute for Healthcare Improvement offers a free data tracking worksheet for the prevention of surgical site infections for hip and knee arthroplasty.

The worksheet was designed to help teams track compliance with interventions recommended in an IHI guide for preventing SSIs for hip and knee arthroplasty.


The document allows teams to enter and track data for key process measures, such as use of an alcohol-containing antiseptic for preoperative skin preparation, and generates automatic run charts.

Download the data tracking worksheet (xlsx) for use in your own facility.
