and processing. During the procurement and processingof food there is a risk of disease transmission. It can
occur when food and food materials are purchased, storage of processed food, or when food are served in
unsanitary state. In terms of siting, the nutrition division is located very close to solid waste holding center,
medical waste incineration site and also close to the morgue. Flies found in any room in the nutrition division
are capable of transmitting diseases. The purpose of this study was to determine the factors that determine
the density of flies in the Nutrition division of the RumahSakit Umum Daerah Waluyo Jati at Kraksaan.
This is a non-experimental research and data are analyzed in the study using descriptive procedures This
method is normally used to solve or answer problems faced in-the present situation. This study was aimed to
identify the factors that influence fly population in the Nutrition Division of the Rumah Sakit Umum Daerah
Waluyo Jati Kraksaan.
Resultsof the measurement on the density of flies at the Nutrition Division of the RSUDWaluyo Jati measured
by fly grills are as follow: Fly density was highest at washing room, food processing room, and the reception
of raw materials. Type of food preffered by flies were various types of vegetables, meat, and food scrappings
retrieved from patients. Type of waste preferred by flies is wet garbage. The average temperature was 26°C
at the time of the study, while the average humidity is 73%.
In order to control flies at the Nutrition Division, it was suggested to the hospital for immediate repair of
higyene and sanitation facilities at the Nutrition Division by installing fly traps, such as light tra-psor fly traps,
practicing clean and healthy behavior by all employess, move or rearrange room assignment, considering that
the Nutrition division was too close to solid waste temporary holding site, incinerator, and morgue.
