Background and Aim: The lack of any definitive treatment or prevention of COVID-19 has caused a great deal of stress and anxiety in communities. In the present study, depression, stress and anxiety of nurses working in corona wards of hospital were evaluated.
Methods: This cross-sectional study was performed with the participation of 125 nurses working in COVID-19 wards of Nohe-Dey Hospital in Torbat-e-Heydariyeh city, Iran in 2020. Data collection tools included a demographic questionnaire and DASS-21 standardized questionnaire.
Results: There were 125 nurses with a mean age of 29.4±6.5 years. The Chi-square test showed that depression, anxiety and stress of nurses were moderate. The one-way analysis of variance test showed that depression with age (P=0.002), anxiety with age (P=0.018), employment status (P=0.009) and satisfaction with personal protective equipment (p=0.015) and stress with age (P=0.011), employment status (P=0.023) are significantly associated.
Conclusion: The rate of depression, anxiety and stress in nurses working in COVID-19 wards in Torbat-e-Heydariyeh Hospital is moderate. It seems that paying attention to training nurses to deal with critical situations similar to COVID-19, and increasing personal protective equipment can be effective in preventing nurses from developing depression, stress, and anxiety.
Keywords: Depression, Anxiety, Stress, Nurses, SARS-CoV-2, COVID-19.
