EVALUATION OF MUSCULOSKELETAL COMPLAINTS OF HEALTH WORKERS IN TRAINING AND RESEARCH HOSPITAL SAMPLE
The aim of this study was to evaluate the musculoskeletal disorders and their related factors among health workers who face many ergonomic risks due to their working conditions. The research was a cross-sectional study and conducted between April and August 2017. The dependent variables of the research were Cornell Musculoskeletal Discomfort Questionnaire points. It was determined that left knee, waist, and left thigh pain were the most disruptive in the work of the workers with a percentage of 23.1%, 16.8%, and 11.5% respectively. According to multivariate linear regression model, the significant variables were ergonomic risk factors, working time, off-duty work, more than eight hours of work, and the significance persisted also on the degraded final model (p<0.05). A moderate correlation was detected only between the left forearm pain score and ergonomic exposure (Rho=0.445). Back and low back pain scores were the highest score. Making ergonomic arrangements, using assistive equipment for transporting patients, using electric patient beds with adjustable height, and providing training on ergonomics principles to employees is crucial for preventing these problems.
