ABSTRACT: 

This study aims to give insight on the psychosocial condition of health care workers at Type D general hospitals (Jatisampurna General Hospital and Bantar Gebang General Hospital) amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The study was conducted in May and June 2021. The study involved qualitative and quantitative methods using descriptive and analytical techniques. Besides interviews, COVID-19 virus exposure risk assessment of health care workers and Copenhagen Psychosocial Questionnaire were conducted. Convenience sampling method was used, with a total of 157 health care workers as respondents. The validity and reliability of the instrument were tested. Psychosocial risk related to COVID-19 clinical risks was analyzed using Fisher’s exact test. The data were further analyzed using a Fishbone diagram-based approach. The results showed that, compared to health care workers that are not clinically exposed to COVID-19, those clinically exposed to COVID-19 had fair quality of influence at work, control over working time, illegitimate tasks, and insecurity over working dimension (p-value < 0.05).

Keywords: psychosocial risk, health care workers, COVID-19.
