ABSTRACT:
The nurses are involved in major part of patient care; they are thus important target population to determine their level of knowledge and practice of aseptic technique in the operation theatre. A descriptive study approach was used to find out the nurses' knowledge regarding aseptic technique in the operation theatre of selected hospitals, Bharatpur. Fifty six nurses working in operation theatre of the selected hospitals i.e. Chitwan Medical College, Bharatpur Hospital and College of Medical Sciences were taken for the study.Data were collected by using semi-structured self-administered questionnaire.
