The Jambi Mental Hospital is a referral center for patients with mental disorders in the province of Jambi; therefore, it is crucial that this hospital be capable of providing good quality health services. The quality of the health services is affected by the human resources, especially nurses. The nursing profession plays an important role in developing the quality of health service in hospitals. The services were provided through the bio-psycho-social-spiritual approach that was carried out continuously for 24 hours. Nurses play a crucial role in health care and have a high workload, especially in the inpatient wards. One of the problems faced by nurses at work is fatigue, including mental and physical exhaustion that prevents an individual from being able to function normally. There are several causes of fatigue among nurses, both work-related and non-work-related factors. Every day, during every shift, nurses may experience mental, physical, or spiritual fatigue. Workload, work hours, work structures, and several other factors can indirectly or directly lead to fatigue. Fatigue among nurses can be harmful to the patients, organizations, and the nurses themselves. For example, a tired nurse may mistakenly record a healthcare provider's telephonic orders for continuing home medications on the wrong medical record. This study aimed to determine the factors related to fatigue among nurses in inpatient wards of Jambi Mental Hospital. This is a descriptive, cross-sectional study. The data were collected through both a literature review and field study in the form of observations and interviews of nurses in inpatient wards. The present results could provide recommendations for Jambi Mental Hospital about the factors related to fatigue among nurses in order to improve the quality of healthcare services.
