55.7% of Medics Work in Stressful Environment

55.7% of Medics Work in Stressful Environment

05.11.2019
November 5 (BTA) - Bulgarian health workers are subjected to strong stress and even psychological abuse while doing their job. Their workplace climate is often not good, which is one of the reasons, especially for younger people, to look for a job abroad, the Confederation of Independent Trade Unions in Bulgaria (CITUB) said on Tuesday. These and other conclusions were drawn on the basis of a nationwide survey which looked into disease incidence and absence from work in the healthcare sector due to psychological and social reasons. The survey was conducted by the CITUB-affiliated Federation of Healthcare Unions. Asked whether they are faced with the risk of stress and abuse in the workplace, 55.7 per cent of respondents answer in the affirmative. Over 60 per cent say they have suffered psychological abuse in the workplace. The main reasons for this are excessive workload and understaffing, unreasonably high demands raised by patients or their relatives, working with minorities, and internal conflicts among medical staff due to heavy workload. Some 58.3 per cent of interviewees describe their workplace climate as "not good." Younger medical workers experience higher levels of emotional fatigue than older medics. The main factors for stress at work are overtime work (according to 51.8 per cent of those polled), working at night and on weekends or holidays, extended working hours, cumulative working time, insufficient rest time, doing non-core work, bureaucracy, and being on duty too often or for long periods of time because there is no one else to do the job. The stress experienced by nursing professionals who are on duty is four times the level registered among other health professionals. The survey also shows that 68 per cent of Bulgarian medical workers are faced with health risks associated with their job. Anxiety, nervousness and sleep disorders are a problem for 43.7 per cent of respondents; physical and psychological fatigue after work is observed in 63 per cent of them; emotional disorders, palpitation and headaches are an issue for 38 per cent; and back, muscle and joint pain is reported by 64 per cent. A worrying 91 per cent of health workers see no measures being taken to address the causes of psychological and social risks in their workplace. In order to boost the motivation of medical specialists and encourage young medics to work in Bulgaria, the CITUB proposes a legislative amendment to allow municipal and central government authorities who own medical establishments to provide pay supplements to the staff in these establishments. The survey was conducted between May 1 and October 30, 2019 among 1,245 respondents, including physicians, nurses, attendants and administrators in 53 medical and healthcare establishments. Most respondents have over 16 years of working experience in the field. RY/VE // Source: Sofia, http://www.bta.bg/en/c/NW/id/2102358
