Introduction: The Quality Control Circle (QCC) exercises in improving the delayed cord clamp rate (DCC) of infants going through vaginal conveyance. By setting up QCC group, to explore and analyze the problems of DCC rate of newborns undergoing vaginal delivery in our hospital therefore, to draw up our new target and the responding measurement. Methods: It was a cross-sectional observational examination to assess the quality control over exercises in improving the delayed cord clamp rate. Infants going through vaginal and cesarean conveyance in each case were carried out at Women’s medical college hospital, Sylhet from November 2020 to December 2020. Total 100 newborns undergoing vaginal delivery and C/S were enrolled for this study. Result: During the study, according to cord clamp rate where the delayed cord clamp (DCC) rate was 40%. According to causes of failure to perform of delayed cord clam, 35% was obstetric nurse factors, followed by 20% cases maternal and their families disagreed, 25% cases maternal had intrapartum complications, 20% cases doctor factors. Conclusion: After the implementation of Quality Control Circle activity, the delayed cord clamp (DCC) rate was significantly improved which indicate more newborns benefit during vaginal delivery and cesarean delivery. Quality Control Circle is an effective managing tool to promote the continuing improvement of medical quality and improve the implementation of the activity, the delayed cord clamp (DCC) rate which improved maternal and infant health and nutrition outcome. It makes brilliant results in both nursing technique and management.
