- Head injury is the main cause of disability and mortality. Several factors that can lead to high disability are the initial GCS score and the treatment duration. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship of initial GCS score and treatment duration to the independence level of patients with head injury. This study was an observational analytic study with retrospective review of 107 samples from medical record dr. R. Koesma Tuban Hospital in the period from January to April 2016. The sampling technique used was cluster random sampling with the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Measurement was conducted using Functional Independence Measure (FIM). The result analyzed using contingency coefficient test. The test results contingency showed that both factors (GCS (p = 0.000) and duration of treatment (p = 0.000)) was significant to the independence level of head injury patients. The conclusion of this study was the initial GCS score, and duration of treatment were factor that associated with head injury patients independence level. Therefore, nurses need to improve the management of head injury patients in the emergency phase without neglecting the initial GCS score and duration of treatment.
