Introduction: The most common route of infection transmission is through direct touch which ‎means it can happen through body contact of infected with susceptible host (infant) by touch. ‎Based on communicable disease control center statistics, almost two million children ‎encounter infection through contact with personnel and utilities which are preventable.‎

Objective: This study aims to determine performance of treatment team due to prevention of ‎infection transmission in neonate wards.‎

Methods: In this descriptive study, samples consisted of doctors, nurses, medical and nursing ‎students, lab technicians and vaccinators in infant wards of Al-Zahra and ‎‏17‏‎ Shahrivar ‎educational centers in Rasht who were chosen during a ‎‏6‏‎ months period (‎‏104‏‎ samples). Data ‎collection tool was checklist of hand washing and data was collected with one-way blind and ‎direct observation‏.‏‎ ‎

 Results: Finding showed that the most of desired performance (‎‏%100‏‎) belongs to nursing ‎students and most of undesired performance (‎‏%75‏‎) was related to medical students and most ‎relatively satisfactory performance (‎‏55%‏‎) was related to ward nurses. Overall most health ‎team personnel (‎‏42.3%‏‎) had undesirable practice regarding hand washing in neonate wards. ‎

Conclusion: In attention to above findings and decreasing attention to use of gown, mask ‎and special shoes in neonate wards, it is more essential to teach hand washing and create a ‎more positive attitude to promote better health care team practice.‎
