Introduction: Preventive measures in providing care for patients with COVID-19 ‎under mechanical ventilation protects healthcare workers (HCWs) against infection. ‎With no data on the compliance of HCWs with preventive measures, this study ‎aimed to examine infection prevention and control in prenatal care providers caring ‎for pregnant women with COVID-19 under mechanical ventilation in Tabriz ‎hospitals in the second quarter of 2020.‎
Methods: This cross-sectional descriptive study was conducted on 60(available ‎sampling) nurses working in COVID-19 ICUs of Imam Reza, Alzahra and ‎Taleghani hospitals in Tabriz in the second quarter of 2020. Instruments to measure ‎preventive measures were prepared by the research team, and the author completed ‎them along with nurses caring for pregnant women with COVID-19 under ‎mechanical ventilation. Data were entered in SPSS 21 and were compared using ‎logistic regression and chi-square tests. P-value was considered to be less than ‎‎0.05.‎
Results: Total score of compliance with preventive measures was 3.45±018 ‎‎(medium); the analysis of logistic regression between demographic variables and ‎compliance with preventive measures indicated a significant statistical difference ‎between marital status (OR=1.2 and CI=0.8-2.0), underlying diseases (OR=1.9 and ‎CI=1.5-2.2), and work history (OR=1.6 and CI=1.4-2.3).‎
Conclusion: In this study, contact precautions in caring for pregnant women with ‎COVID-19 under mechanical ventilation were medium which could have a ‎significant effect on COVID-19 infection among the staff.
