Assessment of musculoskeletal and other health complaints in female hospital staff.
Musculoskeletal and other health complaints were investigated in a sample of 586 female hospital staff.
Health complaints, including musculoskeletal pain, were assessed by the Ursin Health Inventory (UHI).
Factor analyses of the UHI favoured a seven-factor solution in which musculoskeletal pain emerged as an independent factor of complaints.
Other complaint factors could be labelled lower digestive, upper digestive, cardiorespiratory, allergy, cold/influenza and headache.
Factor analyses of the extended version of the Nordic Questionnaire (NQ-EV), which focuses specifically on musculoskeletal pain from nine body areas, favoured a three-factor solution in which complaints from the upper back, low back and extremities emerged as the independent factors.
