Surgical site infections are a common complication, and they can have serious consequences. This consensus statement provides a set of recommendations to prevent surgical site infections in gynecologic surgical care that focus on readiness, recognition and prevention, response, and reporting and systems learning. The authors highlight the importance of teamwork and communication to achieving success and suggest that components of the bundle are applicable across a variety of surgical settings.
