Valutazione ergonomica multifattoriale dell'attività infermieristica ospedaliera, nell'assistenza ad ammalati non autosufficienti.

Translated title of the contribution: Multifactorial ergonomic evaluation of the hospital nursing activity in assisting not self-sufficient patients

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


8 Institutes of Health Care and Research of Northern-Central Italy participated in the study, which consisted of on-site investigations, interviews with the chief-nurse, and monitoring of physiological and subjective variables. We studied the most critical phases in the laboratory, by means of video-graphical systems for biomechanical and postural analysis. The outlined profile shows a demanding activity, yielding important risk factors relative to musculoskeletal lesions. The preventive attitude (education, training) must be implemented by ergonomic interventions, aimed to minimize the risk related to manual handling.
