This article examines how hospital adherence to quality improvement (QI) methods and hospital engagement with a large-scale QI campaign — Project JOINTS, an IHI-led initiative — could facilitate the adoption of an enhanced prevention bundle — a set of evidence-based practices detailed in the How-to Guide: Prevent Surgical Site Infection for Hip and Knee Arthroplasty — designed to reduce surgical site infection (SSI) rates after orthopedic surgery (hip and knee arthroplasty).
