Analysis of the Work Stress Bound in the Conditions of Work of Doctors and Nurses in the Health Institutions of the City of Lubumbashi (in DRC)

MUTELO Kona Cathy

This study analyzes the work stress of doctors and male nurses, stress bound in the conditions of work of these caregivers in hospitals, health centers and polyclinics of the City of Lubumbashi, in RDC. This investigation was led on a laminated proportional sample of 562 subjects (N=562), among which 432 nurses and 130 doctors. The quantitative approach allowed to collect the data by a questionnaire. These were encoded in Microsoft Excel and analyzed via Epi Info software version 7.2 of 2016 and SPSS 19.0 of 2012. Our hypothesis was tested on base of the test of chi-square. Considering the Odds ratio and the confidence interval (CI) of 95 % in the interpretation, the results indicate that, in this social universe characterized by the societal precariousness, almost all of these caregivers experiment the professional stress. This results in particular from diverse problems of manipulation of handling obsolete materials and from the number of patients received exceeding fifteen, especially during the rainy season. In conclusion, health structures work with a large number of stressed doctors and nurses, which lifts the questioning of the quality of care administered to the patients (by nursing put under stress).
