This retrospective review of National Surgical Quality Improvement Program data on hospital-acquired conditions following elective spine surgery found that 3% of these cases had at least one hospital-acquired condition. The most common conditions were surgical site infection, followed by urinary tract infection and venous thromboembolism, all well-recognized conditions with known evidence-based prevention strategies.
