HERNANDEZ-GARCIA, Tirso J.. Burnout Among Doctors of a Public Sector Hospital in the State of Hidalgo. agric. soc. desarro [online]. 2018, vol.15, n.2, pp.161-172. ISSN 1870-5472.

Burnout is characterized by emotional tiredness, depersonalization and derealization. This problem, derived from stress, is frequently present in workers of the health sector and is fostered by various organizational factors, prventing the development of a harmonious work environment and an adequate communication in the different hierarchical levels. The objective of this study consisted in defining the degree of prevalence of this workplace pathology in medical staff of a public sector hospital in the state of Hidalgo, as well as the relationship that it has with some demography and labor variables. The instrument developed originally by Cristina Maslach in 1981 was used, adapted to the Mexican context by Arana (2004). The sample was made up by 150 doctors and the main results indicated the presence of Burnout in the Emotional Exhaustion dimension. Likewise, significant associations were identified with variables such as gender, seniority in the institution, and work shift. Finally, there is the need to carry out interventions directed at preventing the presence of the Burnout syndrome in this type of personnel.
