The study aimed to identify the level of and factors influencing stress experienced by tertiary hospital workers related to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and provide a foundation to develop a systematic stress-relief intervention program.
This descriptive study conducted a questionnaire survey using the Korean version of the COVID-19 Stress Scale. The participants were medical workers, medical technicians, office workers, and other occupational groups in two tertiary general hospitals in J province of Korea with more than six months of work experience. Data were collected from November 2021 to December 2021.
The results indicated that being male, being a healthcare provider, such as doctor or nurse, and income dissatisfaction were significant influencing factors of COVID-19 stress. The independent variables explained the dependent variable by 14.5%. The job category was the most influencing factor, and healthcare providers exhibited significantly less stress than office workers.
Therefore, appropriate education, systematic and differentiated stress management, and policy efforts are required to relieve COVID-19-related stress among tertiary hospital workers.
