 Abstract
This study aimed to investigate the effects of job satisfaction and self-esteem on psychological burnout in dietitians at a geriatric hospital in Busan. The survey was conducted from July 8 to August 31, 2014, and the data were analyzed using the SPSS program. The age group of over 36 years showed higher job satisfaction than the 'Under 25' group. Subjects that worked less than 2 years at their present jobs showed lower job satisfaction in job-itself than the 'Over 4 years' group did, and those who worked less than 1 year showed lower job satisfaction in terms of communication, appraisal compensation, and co-workers than did the other groups. Those who worked in '100~149 bed' hospitals showed higher job satisfaction than those in the 'Under 100 bed' group did. 'Over 200 bed' hospital dietitians showed higher satisfaction in supervision of superiors than did the other groups. Their experience of psychological burnout turned out to be 2.39 out of 5. Psychological burnout had a negative relationship with job satisfaction and self-esteem. Higher emotional exhaustion correlated with lower satisfaction in job-itself, less communication, and less supervision of superiors. Dehumanization correlated with lower satisfaction in job-itself, lower self-esteem, and worse communication, and while decreased personal achievement correlated with lower self-esteem, worse co-workers, lower satisfaction in job-itself, worse appraisal compensation, and worse communication. These results suggest that it would be effective for prevention and management of psychological burnout to mediate factors of job-itself, communication, supervision of superiors, co-worker, and appraisal compensation of dietitians in geriatric hospitals.
