Background: Personnel working in emergency departments are exposed to a lot of burnout due to their nature and occupational factors; therefore, it is very important to pay attention to the factors that cause and aggravate burnout. In the meantime, the existence of organizational justice is an important principle in employee efficiency that can also affect the quality of employee services. Therefore, this study was conducted to investigate the relationship between organizational justice and burnout in emergency department personnel of Tabriz hospitals in 2019.
Materials and Methods: The present study is a descriptive cross-sectional correlational study that was performed on 140 pre-hospital emergency personnel in Tabriz, Iran in 2021. The sampling method was census. Data were collected using a three-part questionnaire including participants’ personal demographic information form, Niehoff and Moorman organizational justice questionnaire, and Maslach burnout inventory (MBI). For data analysis, SPSS software, version 22 was used through descriptive statistics and analytical statistics. The significance level was considered at 0.05.
Results: The results showed that the level of organizational justice and job burnout of participants was in the moderate range. Also, the results of the correlation statistical test showed that there was a significant reverse relationship between organizational justice and job burnout of pre-hospital emergency personnel (P<0.05).
Conclusion: The findings of this study showed that organizational justice is not very desirable from the perspective of pre-hospital emergency personnel and their sense of burnout can be largely related to this situation. Therefore, based on the findings of the present study, it is suggested that managers and officials of pre-hospital medical centers and emergencies by adopting new administrative policies and creating a favorable organizational climate based on human dignity can take positive steps to improve organizational justice and reduce job burnout.
