    Hospital as one of the possible causes of water pollutants containing infectious, pathogens, toxic, biodegradable, radioactive contaminants, pharmaceutical product that can be a hazard agent in the environment. Wastewater treatment plant owned hospitals generally have not been able to eliminate with either of these compounds. National estimates of production wastewater 48.985,70 tons/day, which the total of hospitals in Indonesia as 2.410 hospitals with beds 295.035. The focus of hospital wastewater treatment in Indonesia is basically accordance with government regulations for reducing the chemical, physical, biological and radioactive materials from the wastewater. Climate of Indonesia is located in tropical regions may be produce additional types and other characteristics of wastewater. The Objective of this study to give an overview study of the new pollutant types of contaminants that require special processing through a hybrid membrane technology. The method used in this research were study literature of any membrane process in other countries and investigation of secondary data from multiple hospitals in Indonesia to determine the wastewater characteristics with government regulation. The study of result showed the characteristics of hospital wastewater of tropical region to provide suggestions scientifically for improvements government regulations that are currently used in Indonesia. The other result of this study can provide a picture of hybrid membrane technology in reducing the special waste with optimum process.
