Previous research has shown that job-related stress and burn-out are associated with high levels of demand placed on the worker, especially in situations where influence is low.
This study examined burn-out among nurses working on acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) special care units (SCUs), oncology SCUs, medical intensive care units (ICUs) and general medical units to measure the extent to which delivery method (SCU, ICU, and general unit), patient diagnosis, or other key personal and work-related characteristics were associated with the level of distress in these nurses.
A sample of 237 nurses from 18 units in seven hospitals were surveyed using the Maslach Burnout Inventory.
