Assessment of occupational sress of nurse staff of a General Hospital of Attiki
Background: Nurse staff, due to the nature of their work, is coming face to face with stressor events and this can lead them to increased levels of occupational stress.
Aim: Assessment of anxiety among nurse staff and the assessment of the determinants of occupational stress among nurse staff.
Material- Methods: A cross-sectional study with a convenience sample was conducted among 144 nurses in a General Hospital of Athens “Korgialenio- Benakio” – Hellenic Red Cross. Data collection was performed during March and May 2020. For the measurement of anxiety was used the Expanded Nursing Stress Scale (ENSS). For statistical analysis we used student’s t-test, Pearson’s correlation coefficient, Spearman’s correlation coefficient and multivariate linear regression. Statistical analysis was performed with SPSS v.21.0.
Results: The most stress situation was death and dying, patient and their families, uncertainty concerning treatment and problems with supervisors. According to multivariate analysis, married nurse staff or in cohabitation, had more occupational stress compared with not married/ divorced or widower and the most the years of work, the less was the occupational stress. In addition, increased educational level, relates to increased occupational stress because of death and dying, because of patients and their families, because of workload and finally, because of problems with colleagues.
Conclusions: Taking and adaptation of the appropriate strategy of the management of the organization can reduce the occupational stress of nurse staff.
