Work status, comorbid underlying diseases, COVID-19 vaccination, social support, depression, and insomnia are independent risk factors for anxiety. Marriage, residence, anxiety, and insomnia are independent risk factors for depressive. Comorbid underlying diseases, COVID-19 infection, anxiety, depression and social support are independent risk factors for insomnia. Comorbid underlying diseases, COVID-19 infection, COVID-19 vaccination, anxiety, depression and insomnia are independent risk factors for social support in hemodialysis patients. (P<0.05).
