The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on infection prevention efforts and healthcare-associated infections is unclear. This article discusses how the COVID-19 pandemic has led to adaptations to infection prevention and control and surveillance (IPCS) practices and a human factors and ergonomics perspective in surgery. Leveraging lessons learned from the pandemic, the authors use a human factors perspective to propose an enhanced infection prevention and control approach to prevent surgical site infections.
