Aim and objective: To evaluate the risk factors for surgical site infection in patients undergoing surgery in the gynecology department. Materials and methods: This observational study was conducted among 200 women admitted for gynecological surgery. A detailed history and demographic and surgical details were noted. The recovery of these patients and the presence of surgical site infection (SSI) were also noted. Results: Of the 200 participants, 21% developed SSI and 38% of overweight women and 24% women with anemia developed SSI. Mean duration of hospital stay was more in women with SSI. Conclusion: We conclude that abnormal BMI, route of surgery, and amount of blood loss during gynecology surgery are important risk factors of SSI.
