The Impact of The Work Environment On Nursing Stress At A Neurological Clinic In Ljubljana
Introduction: Stress is becoming more common in the modern world and no one is immune to it. It is also present in the medical professions. We need to be careful to spot it in a timely manner. That is when we take time to rest, otherwise it can lead us to burnout. Research methodology: In the diploma we used a descriptive method of data collection and a quantitative research method. For the research instrument, we compiled a survey questionnaire to determine the impact of the stress work environment and to present how they deal with it. Data collection took place at Neurology clinic at the University Medical center in Ljubljana. The obtained data was statistically processed with the SPSS program. Results: The study shows that more than half of nurses feel exhausted and tired when exposed to stress (68 %). Practically without risk, we also claim (p-value < 0) that there is a statistically significant relationship between night work and stress (correlation coefficient: 0,45). Stress in nurses is also caused by work according to nursing standards (37, 8 %). Discussion and conclusion: Nurses at the Neurology clinic are very often under stress. It was surprised answer that those with lower education (Bachelor’s level) are more stressed. We anticipated that those with higher education (graduate nurses) would be more stressed because they have more responsibility. From the research, we can understand the connection between stress and the work environment at the Neurology clinic in Ljubljana.
