ntroduction: Hemodialysis patients have physical vulnerability due to the progressive decline of the body's systems. The physical changes in the patients can lead to haemostatics failure, known as frailty syndrome. The frail condition can cause maladaptive psychological responses due to changes that can cause anxiety in patients. Objective: This study aims to determine the prevalence of frailty in hemodialysis patients and the different factors that correlate with frailty patients undergoing hemodialysis therapy. Method: This is a cross-sectional study involving 55 respondents who underwent hemodialysis therapy at the Jember Klinik Hospital. The instruments used in this study were the Edmonton Frail Scale (EFS) and the Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale. Results: Moderate frailty was found in 23 patients (41.8%), followed by mild frailty in 18 patients (32.7%) and severe frailty in 14 patients (25.5%). Patient with frailty was associated with income, educational level, anxiety, and time on hemodialysis in a patient. Conclusion: Frailty was highly prevalent in hemodialysis patients and had relations with anxiety and different sociodemographic characteristics of patients.
