Background: Fatigue and job burnout can have a negative effect on nurses’ health and patient care. The aim of this study was to investigate fatigue and burnout in emergency department nurses in two military hospitals.
Materials and methods: To determine fatigue and burnout, Multidimensional Fatigue Inventory (MFI) and Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) were used, respectively. Data were analyzed using SPSS software and Pearson’s correlation test at a significant level of p<0.05.
Results: Overall, 110 military nurses participated in this study. The findings of this research showed that the general fatigue and reduction activity had the highest and lowest scores of fatigue dimensions, respectively. In addition, the results indicated that more than 60% of nurses had low personal quality and depersonalization. There was a significant relationship between fatigue and burnout (p<0.05).
Conclusion: In order to reduce fatigue and burnout, ergonomic interventions (training, shifts, transport equipment of patients, etc.) are recommended.
