Objectives: To value the execution of the norm 0412 of 2000 for the appropiate atention of a newborn in the clinical institutions of Barranquilla and Soledad, Jun-Dic 2005. Materials and Methods: A descriptive study of 210 childbirths was observed and a questionnaire was applied in order to assess the observance of the norm for the childbirth and the newborn care. One questionnaire was implemented for each institution to judge the resolution capacity. The 210 events were observed to assess the condition of the humanized care through the observation and the response to one survey by the mother. The tabulation and analysis of the data were computerized by using the EpiInfo software version 6.04d. Results: In the results, the nurse assistant participated in the care up to a 98.6%, the surgeon attended 58.1% of the childbirths, and the gynecologist/obstetrician (17.6%) and the pediatrician (17.1%). The Apgar evaluation 5 minutes after birth was applied in 64.3% of the newborns and the 10 minutes 28.6% of the newborn. The newborn was identified timely only in 49.5% of the cases. It was found that poor attitude occurs during teamwork in 48.3% of the service staff in the childbirth and maternity ward, and 46.7% of them had no attitude for teamwork. The evidences showed lack of humanization in the following institutions. Little resolution capacity was found in the Institutions. Conclusions: Although the evidences showed certain knowledge of the norm, many of its activities are not being implemented. The context in which is applied isn't satisfactory.
