ABSTRACT

Due to the pandemic of COVID-19, complete lockdown has been declared to the nation by PM Modi in India. Where all the citizens are at their respective homes, clinical experts (doctors, nurses, laboratory technicians), cops and some unsung heroes are working in this critical situation. Almost every second day we hear the news about the violence against doctors. Fear of being beaten for no reasons, fear of being infected, to not meet their families and friends, fear of losing their loved ones, to not able to go their homes, being quarantined for 14 days after their duties and the pressure of their administrative duties are always in their minds. This study was taken with the aim to assess the psychological stress among doctors working during COVID-19. An online survey has been conducted among 70 doctors in India using Perceived Stress Scale (PSS). The results shows that 75.714 doctors fall under the moderate perceived stress score, which confronts considerable measure of stress at their work places. We recommend interventions at the hospitals to helping them coping with their stress.
