Penelitian deskriptif korelatif ini bertujuan untuk mendapatkan gambaran pengaruh karakteristik, peran kepemimpinan, dan fungsi manajemen kepala ruang terhadap perilaku perawat dalam memutus rantai infeksi. Penelitian pada 130 perawat menunjukkan faktor yang mempengaruhi perilaku perawat   dalam memutus rantai infeksi adalah peran interpersonal (p=0,001; OR=7,07; 95% CI ,.25;22,2), peran pengambilan keputusan (p=0,004; OR=4,7; 95% CI 1,7;13.0), dan fungsi pengorganisasian (p=0,001; OR=21,46; 95% CI 7,2;63,9). Faktor yang paling mempengaruhi perilaku perawat dalam memutus rantai infeksi adalah fungsi pengorganisasian (p=0,001; OR=0,047; 95% CI 0,016;0,139). Kepala ruang berperan sebagai role model untuk meningkatkan pengetahuan dan keterampilan perawat untuk berperilaku baik  dalam upaya pencegahan dan pengendalian infeksi di rumah sakit.
