Abstract

Complaints of low back pain often occur in health workers, especially among nurses who work in the Emergency Room since they have a high work intensity. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between individual characteristics and workload on complaints of low back pain among nurses in the Emergency Room at the RSUP H. Adam Malik Medan. The research design used was an analytic survey with a cross-sectional approach. The sample size of 30 respondents was obtained through purposive sampling. The results of statistical tests using the chi-square showed that there was no relationship of individual characteristics (body mass index 0,372; age 0,367; years of service 0,611) and the complaints of low back pain. On the contrary, the workload had a significant relationship on the complaints of low back pain (p-value of 0,001) among nurses at the RSUP H. Adam Malik Medan.
