This study aimed to assess the health care team’s compliance with professional ethical codes as a means to facilitate clinical governance. Material and methods: This is a descriptive and cross-sectional study performed by a census of 211 health care staff in Jahrom. The data gathering tool consisted of a valid, reliable questionnaire including two sections of demographic information (age, sex, employment history, and ward) and 41 questions in 8 areas based on a 5-point Likert scale. Data analysis was performed by descriptive and analytic statistics via SPSS. Results: The overall compliance with ethical codes was 3.82 ± 0.75.
