Objective To explore the risk factors and nursing risk management of wound infection after orthopaedic surgery. Methods The infection condition of 421 traumatic inpatients admitted to our hospital were retrospectively investigated. The related risk factors of wound infection after operation were analyzed, and appropriate nursing intervention measures were formulated. Results There were 26 infected cases after operation, with the infection rate of 6.18%. Open trauma patients had a high risk of wound infection after operation. The longer the operation time and wound clear time costed, and larger the wound incision was, the higher the risk of wound infection was. Patients with other infections before operation had a high risk of wound infection after operation. The more types of antibiotics used, and the longer the hospital stay was, the higher the risk of wound infection was. Conclusion Preoperative evaluation and strengthened management of operating room and perioperation can reduce wound infection rate and improve clinical therapeutic effect.
