Abstract

Chemotherapy drugs could impose hazardous physical effects, especially on nurses administering the drug. However, the precautions may often be of insufficient concern for practitioners. Our study was intended to evaluate the factors associated with nurses‟ adherence to using protection in administering chemotherapy drugs. We performed a cross-sectional data collection on all nurses working at the in-hospital ward of Dr. Soetomo General Hospital where chemotherapy is given. Results showed that of 133 nurses working in the chemotherapy hosting, 53 participants fulfilled the criteria and completed all the questionnaires. Twenty-nine (54.7%) of the participants were aged between 20-30 years old, 38 (71.7%) had vocational nursing qualifications, and 28 (52.8%) had at least six years of working experience. We found factors significantly associated with nurses‟ adherence including attitude (Spearman‟s rho = 0.3; P = 0.03), equipment availability (Spearman‟s rho = 0.5; P < 0.001) and accessibility (Spearman‟s rho = 0.4; P = 0.004), and supervision (Spearman‟s rho = 0.5; P < 0.001). Additionally, the findings indicate that factors associated with nurses‟ adherence to the use of protective precautions in giving chemotherapy include attitude, equipment availability and accessibility, and supervision.
