The assessment of quality of life serves as a critical evaluation of the effectiveness of the administered hemodialysis treatment. The measurement of quality of life can be conducted using the Kidney Disease Quality of Life Short Form (KDQoL-SF™) questionnaire. This research aims to gather information concerning hemodialysis patients’ quality of life due to chronic kidney failure at the dr. S. Hardjolukito Regional Military Hospital in Yogyakarta. The research employed a cross-sectional design. The respondents consisted of 65 outpatients selected through purposive sampling. The inclusion criteria were patients in the end-stage of hemodialysis, having undergone hemodialysis for at least 3 months, aged 18 years or older, willing to participate in the study, and capable of honestly and voluntarily completing the questionnaire. Subjects experiencing disturbances in consciousness, communication impairments, and those designated as emergency patients (Cito) were excluded. The Independent T-test, Mann-Whitney test, Chi-Square test and Fischer test were conducted to define the predictors of quality of life. Most of the hemodialysis patients was male (50.8%) with average of age was 54.66 years old. The findings revealed that 64.6% of the respondents experienced moderate/poor quality of life, while 35.4% exhibited good quality of life. Statistical analysis established a significant relationship between age and period of hemodialysis and quality of life based (p<0.05). Hemoglobin levels, number of prescribed medications, gender, education, occupation and income demonstrated no significant relationship with the quality of life. Among the respondents’ characteristics, age and duration of hemodialysis were associated with the quality of life.
