Objective: The aim of this study was to identify the factors associated with the hospital readmission incidence of hemodialysis patients (HD) in Bandar Lampung, Indonesia. Method: This study used a cross-sectional retrospective study which involved 111 respondents that acquired through consecutive sampling from May 19 to June 1, 2018. The data was obtained using a questionnaire and data collection sheets. Results: There were significant correlations between the hospital readmission incidence and hemodialysis adherence (p = 0.002), anemia (p = 0.048), and social support (p = 0.034). Moreover the median number of hospital readmissions was 2, with a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 8 readmission incidence. Conclusion: Hemodialysis adherence, social support, and anemia in hemodialysis patients were manageable factors that could affect the hospital readmission incidence. Nurse should pay attention in improving the level of care. Nursing interventions need to be developed to improve those factors related to the readmission incidence of hemodialysis patients.
