Abstract


Indonesia doesn’t have a national standard for triage system which means implementation in each
hospital can be different. Nurses have an important role in the application of triage. The Australasian
Triage Scale method (ATS) is one of the triage system in the world used in some countries including
Indonesia but it is very difficult to implementation in overcrowded emergency departement. Nurses ratio
and unstandard triage room make the ATS standart times is difficult to achieve. The aim of this study was
to analyze the various factors affecting Australasian Triage Scale (ATS) in emergency departement Ngudi
Waluyo Wlingi Hospital. We used quantitative research with cross sectional approach and the respondent
are 28 nurses in Emergency Departement Ngudi Waluyo Wlingi Hospital. Univariate analysis is used to
know the description of each variable. Fisher test to determine the relationship between variables.
Logistic regression analysis to determine the most dominant factor affecting the application of
Australasian Triage Scale. Fisher test result show p-Value as follows: performance factor (leadership), p =
0.028 < α = 0,05, client factor (waiting time) p = 0.011 < α = 0,05, equipment factor (triage documentation)
p = 0,036 < α = 0,05, staff requirements factor (education) ) p = 0.013 <α = 0,05, staff requirements factor
(training) p = 0.036 <α = 0,05 The result of logistic regression shows staff requirements factor (education)
p = 0.019 < α = 0.05 with OR 0.059. In conclusion there is a significant affecting between performance
leadership factor, waiting time factor, triage documentation factor,education factor, training factor on the
application of ATS and education is a dominant factor to predict the accuracy of the application of ATS.
Keywords: leadership factor, waiting time factor, triage documentation factor,education factor,
training factor, application of ATS
