A descriptive correlational research design was conducted in the labor room of Obstetric ward of SJMCH, Bangalore. A total of 42 parturient mothers and 62 HCP were the samples. A non participatory observation was done on compliance of infection control protocol (HH, PPE, BMW) using checklist by the investigator. These mothers were observed for puerperal infection on 1st, 2nd and 3rd day for pyrexia, REEDA scale for Episiotomy wound (only 3rd day) and Follow up on Mothers was done by telephonic enquiry on 10th day for the assessment of infection.
