OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether implementing a bundle, defined as a set of evidence-based practices performed collectively, can reduce 30-day surgical site infections. METHODS: Baseline surgical site infection rates were determined retrospectively for cases of open uterine cancer, ovarian cancer without bowel resection, and ovarian cancer with bowel resection between January 1, 2010, and December 31, 2012, at an academic center. A perioperative bundle was prospectively implemented during the… 
Outcomes Associated With a Five-Point Surgical Site Infection Prevention Bundle in Women Undergoing Surgery for Ovarian Cancer.
TLDR
Implementation of a 5-point surgical site infection prevention bundle in women undergoing ovarian cancer operations was associated with dramatically decreased infection rates and lower hospital readmission rates.

TLDR
After implementation of a resident-driven quality initiative using a surgical bundle, a significant decrease in cesarean surgical site infections is observed.
An Incision Closure Bundle for Colorectal Surgery: 2.0 www.aornjournal.org/content/cme
TLDR
The evidence supporting a colorectal incision closure bundle composed of a glove and sterile instrument set change, irrigation with 0.05% chlorhexidine solution, use of triclosancoated sutures, removal of surgical drapes after applying postoperative dressings, and distribution of comprehensive postoperative patient instructions is proposed.
Dual antibiotic prevention bundle is associated with decreased surgical site infections
TLDR
Implementation of a dual antibiotic infection prevention bundle was associated with a 58% reduction in surgical site infection rate after hysterectomy in a surgically diverse gynecologic oncology practice.
Surgical site infection in bariatric surgery: results of a care bundle.
TLDR
The established care bundle, structured by core evidence-based strategies, associated with secondary measures, was able to maintain low SSI rates after bariatric surgery.

Implementation of Evidence-Based Innovative Bundle Checklist for Reduction of Surgical Site Infection
TLDR
An evidence-based checklist for major gynecologic surgeries aimed at increasing compliance with practices known to reduce surgical site infections reduces the rate of surgical site infection after abdominal hysterectomies at an institution.
Implementation of a Bundle of Care to Reduce Surgical Site Infections in Patients Undergoing Vascular Surgery
TLDR
The implementation of the bundle was associated with improved compliance over time and a 51% reduction of the SSI-rate in vascular procedures and is therefore an important tool to improve patient safety and reduce SSI’s in patients undergoing vascular surgery.
Predictors and costs of surgical site infections in patients with endometrial cancer.
Preoperative Oral Antibiotics Reduce Surgical Site Infection Following Elective Colorectal Resections
TLDR
The results strongly suggest that preoperative oral antibiotics should be administered for elective colorectal resections and the role of oral antibiotics independent of mechanical bowel preparation should be examined in a prospective randomized trial.
Enhanced Recovery in Gynecologic Surgery
TLDR
Implementation of enhanced recovery was associated with acceptable pain management with reduced opioids, reduced length of stay with stable readmission and morbidity rates, good patient satisfaction, and substantial cost reductions.
Association of a bundled intervention with surgical site infections among patients undergoing cardiac, hip, or knee surgery.
TLDR
A bundle comprising S. aureus screening, decolonization, and targeted prophylaxis was associated with a modest, statistically significant decrease in complex S.Aureus SSIs in patients undergoing cardiac operations or hip or knee arthroplasties.
Combined preoperative mechanical bowel preparation with oral antibiotics significantly reduces surgical site infection, anastomotic leak, and ileus after colorectal surgery.
TLDR
These data clarify the near 50-year debate whether bowel preparation improves outcomes after colorectal resection, and MBP with oral antibiotics reduces by nearly half, SSI, anastomotic leak, and ileus, the most common and troublesome complications after colOREctal surgery.
