Nurse, Personal Factors, Relationships, Perception, Multidrug Resistant Organisms


This research was descriptive correlation research. There were two purposes. First, to study nurses’ personal factors and perceptions of management to prevent transmission of multi-drug resistant organisms. Second, to study the relationship between nurse’s personal factors and management perception in preventing transmission of multi-drug resistant organisms. The duration of research was set between April to July 2019. 103 nurses who worked in a non for profit private hospital were selected by purposive sampling. There were two instruments: the guideline of management method on transmission prevention of multi-drug resistance and the questionnaire. The response rate for the questionnaire was 91.96% . Data analysis was used frequency distribution statistics, average, percentage, standard deviation statistics, and correlation analysis by Spearman's Rank Correlation coefficient to analyze the data. The results showed that the perception of management to prevent transmission of multi-drug resistance was at an excellent level with an average of 4.75. Spearman’s rank correlation analysis disclosed nurse’s personal factors were significantly associated with departments of working and management to perceive the prevention of the spread of multi-drug resistance (r = 0.262, p < 0.05) but it was a positive low level of relation.
