It also identified the level of satisfaction on the quality of life of ESRD patients. This study involved (n= 80) hemodialysis nurses and (n= 252) ESRD patients as respondents of the study. Methods: The study used descriptive research and utilized weighted mean, Pearson r and spearman rank correlation.
