Corrections to Numbering, Abstract, and Methods

JAMA Surg. 2017;152(8):803. doi:10.1001/jamasurg.2017.1943

In the Special Communication titled “Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Guideline for the Prevention of Surgical Site Infection, 2017,”1 published online on May 3, 2017, the numbering was corrupted in the Recommendations section. In Normothermia, numbers 1 and 2 should have been 4 and 5; in Oxygenation, the final paragraph should have been 7; in Antiseptic Prophylaxis, the final paragraph should have been 10; in Systemic Immunosuppressive Therapy, the second paragraph should have been 14; number 1 in Anticoagulation should have been 17, number 1 in Orthopedic Surgical Space Suit, 18, and number 1 in Postoperative Antimicrobial Prophylaxis Duration With Drain Use, 19. The last 2 sentences of Evidence Review in the Abstract and the third paragraph in Methods were edited for clarity. This article was corrected online.
