Objective: The primary goal of the research was to evaluate psychiatric nurses' psychosomatic health state using sociodemographic factors Materials & Methods.101 people employed as nurses participated in the study, which was carried out at the Mazovian Provincial Hospital in Ząbki. Every participant granted their free and informed consent to take part in the study. The bioethical committee gave the study its blessing. A GHQ-28 questionnaire that has been verified and standardised was used to evaluate the respondents' state of health. At p=0.05, the significance level was established.
Results:Participants' social dysfunction rose with age and length of employment at their current job (p<0.05). Higher education levels and those in married partnerships showed significantly higher scores (p < 0.05) in this domain. A substantial (p < 0.05) increase in the severity of anxiety and insomnia was observed among those with secondary education, those in married relationships, and those with more than 30 years of total job experience, including more than 15 years in the current position. The respondents' lack of higher education was linked to the severity of their depressed symptoms. Age over 50 was the factor that had the biggest influence on somatic symptoms among the nurses surveyed (p < 0.05).
Conclusions: The age of participants has a substantial correlation with the severity of somatic symptoms, anxiety, sleeplessness, and functional difficulties. The severity of individuals' symptoms of anxiety and insomnia, their functional limitations, and their marital status are all significantly correlated. The degree of participants' education is significantly correlated with the severity of their social dysfunction, anxiety, sleeplessness, and depression symptoms.
