Abstract

Personal hygiene is important for after cesarean patients because personal hygiene will affect one’s health

and psychological well-being. Patients with after cesarean wounds should be given immediate wound care by

cleaning to prevent infection during the wound care. This will affect the wound healing process in cesarean

surgery patients. This study aims to determine the relationship between personal hygiene and healing of

after cesarean wounds in the NTB General Hospital. An accidental sampling technique of 52 patients with

after cesarean section who experienced personal hygiene during wound care in the NTB General Hospital

was used in this study using a prospective cohort study design. By using data analysis based on the chi

square test, the results showed that personal hygiene in after cesarean patients was mostly good category of

40 respondents (76.9%), cesarean section wound healing in after cesarean patients most of the categories

were cured as much as 46 respondents (88.5%) and obtained a p-value of 0.002 <0.05. The results of the

study confirmed the relationship between personal hygiene and healing of after cesarean wounds in the

NTB General Hospital. This study recommends that nurses and other health teams develop theories and

guidelines for the implementation of personal hygiene that are more effective and efficient in order to reduce

infection after cesarean section.
