Background: Cerebro Vascular Accident (CVA) is a
disease that ranks at the top in dr. Soedjono Magelang
Hospital. Cerebro Vascular Accident is one of the leading
causes of death in the world. Length of stay (LOS) is the

the highest occupation was work (71.1%), the highest
type of CVA was infarction CVA (81.9%), the biggest
disease complications were complications (92.8%). Chi-
Square statistical test results: age (p = 0.426), gender

0.030), complications (p = 0.418). Conclusion: Inpatient
