Abstract

The World Health Organization (WHO) has identified the importance of applying vigilance among health workers in all actions to prevent an increase in health care-associated infections (HAI). The use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is one of the important issues in the medical world that is often neglected in its use. This study aims to analyze the determinants of nurse compliance in the use of PPE. Quantitative research with analytical survey design. Respondents in this study were all 62 nurses who used target sampling with Chi-Square test and continued with multiple logistic regression test. The results showed that there was an effect of knowledge (p = 0.002), risk perception (p = 0.009), and workload (p = 0.007) on nurses' compliance in using PPE. Knowledge is 4 times more effective for nurses who are obedient to PPE. It is expected that the hospital will provide knowledge and skills training to nurses by providing education and training on the use of PPE on a regular basis.
