Workplace stress can influence healthcare professionals’ physical and emotional well-being by curbing their efficiency and having a negative impact on their overall quality of life. Healthcare professions are among the first six most stressful workers ones. Not all health professionals develop the same level of stress, and not all of them develop signs of professional burn-out either. In this study we explored the quality of life (QOL) of health care providers in King Abdul-Aziz hospital in Al Ahsa, Saudi Arabia. King Abdul-Aziz hospital is one of the high stander hospitals in Saudi Arabia. A descriptive cross-sectional survey design was used to evaluate the quality of life of healthcare provider’s status of KAH employees. 239 participants completed the questionnaire (78% response rate). The survey method design was used to get a better understanding of the problems. Quality of life of healthcare providers was measured using the Work-Related Quality of Life (WRQoL) scale. Professions group showed that the group of others (pharmacist and none physicians, none nurses or none allied health care workers) scored the highest mean 85.33 (15.15) while physicians scored the lowest mean 77.57 (SD = 17.04). In this study only the professions significantly affect the work-related quality of life. In conclusion, nurses have better quality of life than physicians. Regular evaluation of the healthcare worker stress level and implement strategies to improve QOL in healthcare providers are necessary for quality of patient care and safety. Also it can make the work environment healthier.[Full Text Article]
