wound classification


Specializes in surgical, emergency. Has 40 years experience.

Question for OR nurses.

Has anyone heard of a revision to the surgical site wound classification system??

You know....Class I, clean, Class II clean/contam.

The last official word I can find is 1999, which is what we use, but I thought I heard there was a revision out, or coming out.

Not sure why, it's probably the same bugs....just sorting them out differently! :chuckle
