Since many of the microorganisms responsible for surgical site infections reside on the patient's own skin, pre-operative skin preparation helps reduce risk of surgical site infections. 3M provides solutions for pre-operative hair removal, patient skin prepping and OR draping.
3M surgical drapes are impervious to liquid strikethrough which can help to reduce bacterial transfer and subsequent contamination of the surgical site.
