Cobalt has strict nursing and cleaning procedures which reduce the risk of infection to very low levels. We would advise you to have a shower or bath with soap on the evening before or on the day of your surgery to further reduce the risk of a wound infection.
There are additional leaflets on healthcare acquired infection (HAI) and MRSA. Please contact us if you would like to see them, or you would like to know anything else about our infection prevention measures.
