The purpose of this study was to assess burnout, resilience and the association with safety culture in nurses working in mental health institutions in Jazan government Hospital.
A cross-sectional survey using convenience sampling, with 119 nurses from the Jazan hospital between June and August 2018 was used.
The results of this study showed that 45.6% of the participants experienced a high level of emotional exhaustion, 36.5% reported a high level of depersonalisation and 15.9% reported high personal achievement. The high level of burnout and its dimensions have a negative effect on patient safety and resilience.
It is particularly important to assess burnout among mental health nurses, resilience and its association with safety culture. Although this study will add to a small body of knowledge, it will also be able to provide policymakers with evidence as how best to reduce burnout among nurses delivering mental health care in Saudi Arabia.
