- Identify transmission dynamics of pathogenic bacteria (i.e. Staph aureus). [ Time Frame: Intraoperative period ]Focus on how Staph aureus is transmitted in the operating room by identifying key areas of origin.
- Intraoperative clonal transmission of Staph aureus. [ Time Frame: Intraoperative period ]Monitor locations throughout the operating room to document clonal transmission from the area of origin.
- Identify the modes of transmission of pathogenic bacteria ((i.e. Staph aureus). [ Time Frame: Intraoperative period ]If transmission of Staph aureus from the site of origin to another site in the operating room arena is documented, identify the modes of transmission.
- Monitor for post operative healthcare associated infections. [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days following surgery ]Monitor for the presence or absence of healthcare associated infection after undergoing an operative procedure.
- Surveil for molecular links between pathogenic organisms. [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days following surgery ]Seek to identify molecular links between causative organisms of infection and bacteria found in the operating room at the time of surgery.
