IDSA Surgical Wound Infection Algorithm
Algorithm for the management and treatment of surgical site infections (SSIs).
*For patients with type 1 (anaphylaxis or hives) allergy to β-lactam antibiotics. If Gram stain not available, open and debride if purulent drainage present. Where the rate of infection with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infection is high, consider vancomycin, daptomycin, or linezolid, pending results of culture and susceptibility tests.
