Abstract

The results of the 2018 prevention of infection control (PIC) committee regarding compliance with the application of hand washing by doctors 53.3%, nurses 47.9% and other health workers 35.6% against a minimum service standard of 85%. This condition is thought to be caused by individual characteristics and hospital completeness (the role of PIC, and completeness of facilities and infrastructure). The purpose of this study was to analyse the relationship between individual characteristics, the role of PIC and the completeness of facilities and infrastructure to nurse compliance in the application of hand washing. This research was conducted through a cross sectional survey approach with a population of 113 nurses with simple random sampling technique. Data were collected through questionnaires and analysed with univariate, bivariate and multivariate (using multiple logistic regression) methods. The results of the study of nurses less adherent to washing their hands 64.6% and 35.4% obedient. Individual characteristics (knowledge p = 0.003 and attitude p = 0.002), the role of PPI (p = 0.002), and completeness of facilities and infrastructure (p = 0.017) were related to the compliance of nurses washing hands. It can be concluded that individual characteristics, the role of PPI, and the completeness of facilities and infrastructure were an essential factors in improving compliance with the implementation of hand hygiene.
