This study was conducted at the Infectious Disease Hospital, Mohakhali, Dhaka through an interview schedule and check list. The study population comprised of attendants of 64 neonatal tetanus cases. It has been observed that majority of neonatal tetanus patients came from low socio-economic condition. The follow-up records of 45% admitted cases did not include complete salient features. Treatment was not reviewed in majority of cases within 6-12 hours. Progress reports of serious cases were not maintained properly in about 50% cases. Case fatality rate was very high (64.46%) and recovery rate was only 12.4%. Standard criteria and norms should be developed as to measure the performance in terms of quality assurance of neonatal tetanus cases to justify the cost effectiveness.
