Background: Turnover intention is the tendency of employees to leave the organization or resign voluntarily from their job. Several factors that might influence turnover intention are included job satisfaction, work environment, and compensation. Aims: This study aimed to determine the Path Analysis of the effect of job satisfaction, compensation, and work environment on the turnover intention of nurses at Kotamobagu Regional General Hospitals. Methods: A total of 34 nurses (total sampling method) contributed in this cross-sectional study. The model is presented with a single-directed arrow indicating cause and effect. The regression weights predicted by the model are compared with the correlation matrix from the observed data and then the goodness of fit is calculated. This study uses data analysis that is adapted to the research pattern and the variables studied. A causal model was employed, and to test the proposed hypothesis the SEM analytical technique (Structural Equation Modeling) was operated through the AMOS program. Results: From the statistical analysis, the study shows a significant relationship between job satisfaction and turnover intention (p-value = 0.011), and between the compensation and the turnover intention (p-value = 0.026). However, we found that there was no relationship between work environment and turnover intention among the nurses at Kotamobagu Regional General Hospitals (p-value = 0.935). Conclusion: This study concluded that there is a correlation between work satisfaction and compensation on turnover intention (direct factor), but there was no correlation between work environment on turnover intention (mediator). It is suggested a need to arrange regular evaluation in terms of job satisfaction and compensation to prevent turnover among the nurses.

The current view is that the hold of the Covid-19 virus is now being altered from pandemic to endemic status with global cooperation. While vaccination remains a central component of the public health interventions required to achieve this, a range of innovative health promotion strategies are also needed in parallel if we are to ensure that the pandemic continues to wane further. Research and personal experience tell us that Covid-19 vaccines offer high protection against severe illness, aid the delivery of health care and save lives. However, WHO communiqués reiterate that vaccine hesitancy is a major threat to global health and that many countries still need to improve vaccination rates. It is also stated that in order to do this innovative strategies are needed to establish greater trust, improve communication and reduce misinformation. Consequently health care providers are being urged to build on lessons learned during the pandemic, find ways to build trust, counter residual vaccine hesitancy and promote other health related behaviors that are inclusive, allay fears and avoid scapegoating. Importantly, the strategies needed to increase willingness to be vaccinated and promote the health-related knowledge and behaviors necessary for the pandemic to continue to wane are now known to be highly country-specific, and regional differences in what approaches are required are also evident within counties. Consequently, as health care providers we need to develop innovative strategies and employ task shifting to the meet the specific needs of the individual populations we serve. This review summarizes ways to approach this challenge based the core principles advocated by WHO for promoting health literacy and changing behaviors; community empowerment, people-centered strategies, innovative education, novel and improved tools, training to respond to local needs, and the use of non-traditional avenues and outlets.

Background: The quality of health services cannot be separated from the collaboration of all components of human resources, including nurses. Transformational leadership supported by supervision can also improve the prevention and control of infection risk in order to optimize their work performance. Supervision activities carried out by the head of the room might have a positive impact on nurse commitment. Aims: The objective of this study is to analyze the influence of supervision and transformational leadership style on nurse compliance in infection risk prevention and control at GMIBM (Gereja  Masehi Injili at Bolaang Mongondow) Monompia General Hospital, Kotamobagu, Indonesia. Methods: This original research used an analytic observational with a quantitative approach and a cross sectional study design. A total of 72 nurses who worked at GMIBM Monompia Kotamobagu General Hospital, Kotamobagu Regency, Indonesia, was selected in August 2022 using a total sampling technique based on the data from the human resources division. Two combined questionnaires were distributed to define the leader supervision (20 questions) and the nurses’ compliance and their transformational leadership styles (18 questions) for prevention and control the infection risks. The results of this study were analyzed using SPSS Software (univariate and bivariate parameters). Results: This study shows that a sufficient supervision frequency (59.7%) among the participated nurses. We identify there were four transformational leadership styles among the nurses at the selected hospital: Ideal influence (33.3%), Inspirational motivation (27.8%), Individual consideration (20.8%) and Intellectual stimulation (18.1%). Moreover, the majority of nurses performed good compliance in the preventing and controlling the infection risks (80.6%). The lack of compliance might be significantly resulted by the leader supervisions (p-value: 0.002). By the bivariate analysis, this study suggested that there is a relationship between transformational leadership style and compliance (p value: 0.001). We also noticed that the leader supervision and transformational leadership style are moderating variables to strengthen the nurse compliance (R Square = 0.336). Conclusion : This present study strongly suggested the hospital manager and head departments to pay attention to the two strong factors (Supervision and transformational leadership style) affecting the nurses compliance in updating and implementing the prevention and risk control programs.

Background: The achievement parameter for maternal health services program is the access of pregnant health services, as indicated by measuring the coverage of antenatal care services. In Indonesia, examination of pregnant women according to antenatal standards is regulated by Ministry of Health Indonesia Number 21 of 2021, where pregnancy checks must fulfill the standard 10 T criteria.Aims: This study aimed to identify the Standard Operating Procedures of antenatal care in Gamping I Public Health Center, Yogyakarta, Indonesia, and determine its relation with pregnant women’s satisfaction during pregnancy examination. Methods: Of 70 TM III pregnant women, who routinely visit for antenatal care service at the Public Health Center Gamping I, a total of 40 pregnant women were selected using consecutive sampling with 10% margin of error. A set of questionnaires was distributed to the respondents to asses: (1) The implementation of the antenatal care service standard (20 questions, and weighted using a dichotomy scale) and (2) The pregnant women satisfaction (22 questions, and weighted using the Likert scale. The data obtained from respondents were then tabulated and processed using Microsoft Office Excel 2010 and then analyzed using the SPSS Statistics 16.0 program (Pearson Product Moment formula with an error rate of 5%). Results: There are 10 pregnancy tests (10T) received by the pregnant women at the health center including the measurement of Height, Weight, Blood pressure, upper arm circumference, Uterine fundus height, Presentation & Fetal heart rate, Provision of 90 Fe Tablets, Laboratory examinations, Case handling, TT Immunization Screening, and Counseling & mental health assessment. According to the findings of the research conducted by the researchers, antenatal examinations were not carried out in a comprehensive and thorough manner in instances. This article provides the women satisfaction to the antennal care on different dimensions of satisfaction including Physical Proof, Reliability, Responsiveness, Guarantee, and Empathy. Even though the analysis shows that the respondents was satisfied with the antennal care services; however, the relation is not statistically significant (p-value of 0.652). Conclusion : One's satisfaction is very difficult to measure and someone's satisfaction is different from the satisfaction of someone else. According to the findings of the study, every time a midwife performed an antenatal checkup, she had never provided complete 10T-based antenatal care.

At the Toddler Posyandu or Posyandu Balita, the health workers and mothers and toddlers are possible to meet, and they may communicate together to monitor toddlers growth and development. This photo essay records our health service communication in monitoring toddler growth and development in the New Normal at Posyandu Hidup Baru Desa Kaong, Kecamatan Upau, South Kalimantan, Indonesia. The activities include counseling, height and weight checking for toddles, and immunization. The visits cannot be done virtually, since we must directly provide examination of nutritional status, immunization, counseling and others monitoring to the mothers and toddlers following the standard protocols, and not all mothers of toddlers have the measuring devices. Since the checking and monitoring have been done during the Covid 19 pandemic, posyandu must apply health protocols when communicating and providing health service to the mothers and toddlers. Thus, all participants presented at the posyandu will not get infected with covid 19, and the toddler growth and development can be monitored regularly.
