Author(s): Dara Nurhaliza, Ardia Putra, Noraliyatun Jannah, Yuswardi, Yullizar


Background: Workplace violence often occurs in hospitals and the nursing profession, which can become an obstacle and affect the quality of nursing care to patients. A study showed that 59% of workers in hospitals in Aceh experienced WPV incidents. However, there has not been much research on WPV in Aceh, especially regarding the socio-demographic factors of nurses with the incidence of WPV in Banda Aceh City. This research aims to determine the relationship between nurses' socio-demographics, namely gender, age, marital status, and employment status, and WPV incidence in Banda Aceh City.

Methods: This type of quantitative research uses a cross-sectional study design. Data collection used a simple random sampling method on a sample of 278 nurses at Meuraxa Hospital, Banda Aceh. A modified questionnaire from the NIOSH concept was used for data collection, which has been tested for validity and reliability.

Results: There were no significant results between gender (p-value = 0.952), age (p-value = 0.471), marital status (p-value = 0.725), and employment status (p-value = 0.075) with the incidence of WPV in nurses in Banda Aceh.

Recommendations: It is hoped that the results of this research can be a source of information for the government and hospitals in Banda Aceh City to implement risk management for WPV incidents and reduce WPV incidents in the future.
