We studied nosocomial infection in a group of 608 pediatric surgical patients over a 14-month period.
All inpatients and outpatients who received an operation with an incision by the pediatric general surgical service were entered into the study.
Demographic, nutritional, clinical, and laboratory data were collected.
Surveillance was conducted for wound infection, septicemia, infections of the respiratory tract, urinary tract, and abdomen, and infectious diarrhea.
A total of 676 operative procedures was performed.
Nosocomial infection occurred in 38 of the 608 patients (6.2%). A total of 53 infectious complications was tabulated.
