Abstract/Summary

Stress is a natural part of life, and it can be defined as the inability of the individual to cope with the demands of the environment. Occupational stress is commonly found in the working environment of the individual, and caused by increased workload, overtime, hostile environment, shiftwork, etc. The objective of this study is to identify, measure, and correlate the stress levels experienced by the Emergency department (ED) residents of Makati Medical Center with their assigned work shift. The population size of the ED residents is 28. The results of this study were as follows: 1.) Working Shift: There is no significant difference among the different work shifts of the ED residents. 2.) Year Level: There is a significant difference of stress levels in the second year level of residency in the Emergency department in comparison to the first year residents, and fourth year. 3.) Gender: The stress levels of the ED residents show that there is no significant difference of stress levels between genders of the residents in the Emergency department. The results suggest that the institution of Makati Medical Center is an environment where the residents are able cope with the demands of the institution and its employed ED residents are able to perform their tasks with manageable levels of stress.
