When they are a newborn or if they are a preemie, hand washing is a good idea, just in case they have germs that could make the baby sick. If they practice good hand washing skills when the baby is older, I don't see it being an issue. This could be a case by case thing where only certain people wash their hands before holding your baby. It wouldn't be a bad idea for them to wash them, especially if your baby puts their fingers in baby's mouth.
