Surgical site infections (SSIs) are a type of health care associated infections, which is caused by bacteria that occurs at or near surgical incision within 30 days of operation or after 1 year if implant is placed[1]. SSIs have a significant effect on quality of life for the patient. They are associated with considerable morbidity and extended hospital stay resulting in a significant financial burden to health care seekers and the country in general. It is increasingly recognized as a measure of the quality of patient care by both healthcare providers and the public [2, 3].
