Abstract

We commend McLaws et al. for their informative review on the validity of surgical wound infection as a clinical indicator in Australia. We too, wish to emphasize that consistency in case‐finding methods and indicator definitions is mandatory when pooling data and using indicator rates to compare quality of care.
