Abstract: 

Introduction: Surgical site infection is one of the most common nosocomial infections and today it is believed that this infection caused by bacterias which penetrate into the wound during operation. Surgery team members who have much contact with surgical site tissues, can control this infection by observing infection control principles. This study was done in order to determine performance rate of surgery team members in observing infection control principles in operation rooms.

Materials and Methods: This study is a descriptive study in which 80 surgical team members participated. For collection data a questionnaire was employed to record demographic characters of participants and a cheek list used to determine their performance rate regarding the observance of infection control principles. By employing checklist, the recorded performance of each participant via hidden observation was done three times.

Results: The results showed that performance rate of participants with regard to observing infection control principles was moderate, by the way correlation study indicated that the relationship between participants performance rate and their job,work Experience and age was not statistically significant while the relationship between participants performance rate and their sex was statistically significant, that is women performance rate was better than that of men's.

Conclusion: This study showed that the participants did not observe certain infection control principles. Therefore while-working education, activating infection control committee in operation room, performing supervised mechanism, employing new antiseptic materials for surgery scrub and replacing traditional methods by new ones seems to be necessary.
