Abstract

Mental health of physicians and nurses has great influences on their patientsâ�� mental and physical well being, so we decided to determine the effects of work place parameters on mental health of physicians and nurses worked in emergency wards in comparison of who worked in non-emergency wards of hospitals.  Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was performed in university hospitals of Mashhad city, north east of Iran in 2009-2010. Through accessible non-randomized sampling, 107 physicians and nurses were selected and divided in to emergency department and non-emergency department groups. General Health Questionnaire (GHQ), Work Environment Scale (WES), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Checklist-Civilian version (PCL-C) and demographic questionnaire were used to gathering data. Data has been analyzed with SPSS-11.5, using t-test, U Mann Whitney and chi-square.  Results: There are no significant relationship in the average of GHQ, WES and PCL-C scores between two groups (P<0.05) but emergency department group had more traumatic experiences in work place (P=0.008).  Conclusion: Working in emergency departments, even with more occupational traumatic experiences, had no negative effects on mental health of physicians and nurses.  Â
