Discharge readiness of post-hip surgery is the patients’ preparation process, which is started before they discharge to the period after the patients return home. This study aims to identify the factors which influence the patients’ discharge readiness after undergoing hip surgery. This study applied a descriptive correlational design with a cross-sectional approach. The samples consisted of 90 post-hip surgery patients selected by consecutive sampling techniques. The results of multivariate analysis show that gender, socioeconomic status, planned admission, first hospitalization, previous admission for the same diagnosis, length of stay, discharge teaching quality, and caring coordination have a significant effect on 44.1% for discharge readiness of post-hip surgery patients (p = 0.0001), in which the most influential factor is discharge teaching (β = 0.318). Discharge teaching in hip surgery is one of the recommended interventions to increase patients’ discharge readiness.
