Infection management in hospitals is critical for the safety and well-being of patients, healthcare staff and visitors. It affects several hospital departments and also involves issues with quality risk management, clinical governance of health and safety. In order to create a managed environment, all institutions that provide health care should have a hospital infection control programme with a stable framework. The study's goal is to evaluate and compare infection control policies and practises among healthcare professionals. The study will be useful in bridging the gap between current infection control practises by serving as a source of discovering elements of existing infection control practices. It also combines the process with the organisation in order to sustain and improve it. It was clear that infection control measures and practises were inadequate due to a variety of factors, including inadequate biomedical waste management practises, inadequate spill management practises, inadequate sodium hypo chloride usage practises, inadequate needle recapping and documentation of needle stick injuries, and inadequate hand washing practises before touching the patient. According to the findings of the study, there was insufficient infection control practise among health care workers, as well as a low compliance rate. As a result, there is a need for on-going and necessary training, surveillance, and infection control programmes.
