 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.
