ICCS Publishes Special Report on Surgical Attire in the OR

ICCS Founder Phenelle Segal, RN, CIC, has published a new special report discussing regulations and guidelines concerning surgical attire worn in the operating room (OR).

The report addresses the recently published statement on professional attire for surgeons from the American College of Surgeons (ACS).

While Segal praises the value of organizations bringing attention to infection prevention issues, she notes that "... aspects of the statement have created significant confusion amongst hospital and ambulatory surgery center (ASC) staff," specifically concerning head coverings.
