Caption: Surgeons scrubbing hands. View of two surgeons thoroughly washing their hands and arms prior to performing surgery. They are wearing full operating theatre gear, including gowns, face masks and caps. Rigorous hygiene is essential in surgery to minimise the risk of infecting the patient. Despite these measures, however, a small proportion of surgical wounds still become infected.
