Nutritional installations as a place for storing, processing, serving, and distributing food can attract flies and pose a risk of contamination. The location of the nutrition installation is close to the incinerator, morgue, and TPS. This study aims to describe the density level of flies in the Nutrition Installation of  M.

Th Djaman Sanggau Regional General Hospital. Data collection was done by interview and observation. The data obtained are presented in tabular form, described, and described in narrative form. From the results of the study, it was found that the density of flies in the nutrition installation of M. Th. Djaman Sanggau Sanggau Regional General Hospital  is 1.13 tails per block grill with the results already fulfilling the requirements. The average measurement results for temperature figures are 28°C, humidity 75.8%, and lighting intensity 223.7 Lux. It is necessary to control the density level of flies in the TPS container at M. Th Djaman Sanggau Regional General Hospital., by improving the sanitation and hygiene of TPS containers, spraying insecticides and improving waste management.
