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.
