Introduction: The treatment room becomes a potential practice for transmitting infections either through direct contact when the patient receives services from a nurse or indirectly through tools, materials, and supporting facilities used in supporting nursing services.

Objective: Obtain a description of the nurse's behavior in implementing infection control and prevention in patients.

Method: Use a descriptive observational design. The population of this study is nurses in the inpatient section, with a sample number of 60 nurses.

Results: Research shows that nurses' behavior in infection prevention and control is still not as good as (60%).

Conclusion: Health workers, especially nurses, must apply universal precautions properly to reduce the number of Health Care Associated Infections (HAIs).
