This study aimed to investigate opinions of health workers about work
place on behalf of workers’ rights, occupational safety and relations with
administration in a public hospital. Data were gained from 93 health
workers working in a district of Diyarbakır , Bismil Public Hospital. A
survey was conducted among health staff face to face and obtained data
were analyzed by SPSS 15.0 package program. Findings showed that 34,4%
of participants were between age of 26-30, 49,5% were female and 83,9%
were married. While 53,8% of health staff expressed that they were able to
report their problems to hospital management, 6,5% of them stated that
directory of hospital didn’t mind problems of workers. 44,1% of health staff
stated that hospital management didn’t take enough measures in order to
provide safety at work. It was also found that 78,5% of participants were
satisfied with trainings for vision and quality of hospital but 33,6% were
unsatisfied with trainings for reporting workplace violence in the hospital.
74,2% expressed that employees were not awarded frequently in the
hospital. It was found that there was a negative relationship between age
and satisfaction about management relations in the hospital (-,245,
p<0,05). This may result from higher expectations of older workers. Also
health workers having more work experience were not satisfied with
management relations (,269, p<0,01).
Health workers who thought they were working in a safe workplace were
more satisfied with management relations (,342, p<0,01). When relationship
between work experience and satisfaction with definition of task was
analyzed, a negative correlation was found (-,229, p<0,01). A positive
correlation was found between effective use of human resources and precise
task definition ( ,288, p<0,01). As a result it can be said that priority should
be given to improve relationships between management and staffs.
Employees should feel themselves as a part of the organization.
