Abstract

Nurse workload is defined as all of the activities performed by a nurse while working in a nursing service unit.
Work-related musculoskeletal disorder (WMSD) is a Musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) that becomes more
severe or lasts for a long time due to work-related activities. This study aims to determine the relationship
between the workload of emergency room nurses and the level of complaints in the musculoskeletal system
through the Nordic Body Map (NBM) method approach in every regional hospital in Tuban City. This study
was carried out using descriptive correlative study method with a cross sectional approach. The number
of respondents that participated in this study were 63 E.R. nurses who worked in regional hospitals in
Tuban City. Data was collected using a workload questionnaire and the Nordic Body Map (NBM) method
to determine the level of complaints of the musculoskeletal system. Data was then analyzed using Chi
Square test. Results showed that 54% of the respondents had moderate workload and no emergency nurses
at hospitals in Tuban City had light workload. 44.4% of emergency nurses at hospitals in Tuban City had
severe musculoskeletal complaints. According to this data, there is a relationship between the workload of
emergency room nurses and the level of complaints in the musculoskeletal system (P = 0.028). In conclusion,
emergency nurses should keep an eye on their workload so that musculoskeletal problems do not occur.
